Learn to Row (classes from April to September)
This program is for all who are interested in learning to rowing -  for sport or recreation  - with no previous rowing experience. New rowers are instructed in the basics of rowing technique; they learn to work together as a crew to balance and move boats of various sizes. Skills are developed to allow ease of entry into more experienced rowing programs.

We offer several Learn to Row (LTR) Programs each year. Each program is 16 hours of instruction, safety education and practice to expose you to the exciting world of rowing! Once you have completed the program you can join a Novice Program to further develop your skills.  When you have mastered the basic skills, you may join FLCRC as a full member.  Learn to Row program spaces are limited, so register early to secure your place!  Learn more or register here.
