Our coaches are ready to share their love of rowing with you!

Rowing is a "late entry" sport - many international competitors learned to row as young adults, in university.

FLCRC welcomes adults of all ages to join a LEARN TO ROW program and find out what rowing is all about!  

Please email us if you have any questions about how rowing might become a part of your active lifestyle. 





Group of 2? Custom class times available

Novice classes will resume when Covid restrictions will permit the use of multi-person boats



Want to learn more about the sport of rowing?   

Our LEARN TO ROW (LTR) program is the entry point for anyone (adults) interested in learning to row for sport or recreation with no previous rowing experience.

DUE TO THE COVID PANDEMIC - We are unable to offer entry level programs at this time.

When our programs resume, Learn to Row is now divided in TWO SEPARATE PARTS, 4 sessions each, of approximate two hours per session. 

Due to Covid restrictions, each class will be limited to two participants, rowing in pontooned single rowing shells. This results in an excellent semi-private learning environment.

PART 1 is the MOST BASIC INTRODUCTION TO ROWING -  safety education, learning the elements of the rowing stroke on rowing machines, and starting to develop your rowing stroke on the water. There are a lot of things to learn, these four sessions will introduce you to the basics.

PART ONE is limited to THREE REGISTRANTS per class, with an experienced rower helping in the boat each day.

.PART 2 is for graduates of PART ONE, and for people who have completed a LTR in the past but need some basic refreshers. There will be four on-water sessions, at times combined with more experienced rowers - with an emphasis on PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE to get comfortable with the rowing stroke and develop your basic skills.

Learn To Row fees for 2021 are  - PART ONE  $250. Includes RCA and ROWING BC annual fees

                                                          PART TWO $150 (plus RCA and Rowing BC fees, if you bypassed Part 1)


Once you have completed both parts of LTR, your NEXT STEP will be to join our NOVICE GROUP
