Learn to Row Schedule for 2018

Our Learn to Row program is ready to go for 2018! The new format is a 2-3 hour ‘taste of rowing’ format where we show you the basics and then get you in a shell and rowing with some experienced rowers to steady the boat.

Our schedule is as follows (you only need to attend one class):

Saturday, May 12th, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Saturday, June 2nd, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Saturday, June 30th, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Saturday, July 14th, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Fees: (Note: if your Learn to Row class occurs between May 26 and September 3 you will need to pay the $7.00 entry fee when entering the Boulder Reservoir for your class)

In a Learn to Row class, you will be taught a brief primer on the fundamentals of rowing and then get on the water with several new and experienced rowers. At the end of the time, Coach Vee guarantees you will be racing against other boats. This course is intended to be just a ‘taste’ of rowing, and, should you be interested in continuing, you will be qualified to move straight into Novice rowing classes the following Monday. In fact, we have a super affordable program for new Novices that is just $100 for 3 weeks of rowing (6 classes) which equates to less than $17/class! All Learn to Row classes, especially the April class, will have a “Inclement Weather/ Indoor Rowing” component organized due to variable and unpredictable weather conditions.

And while you’re at it, take a look at some of these great rowing videos…. what looks interesting? Rowing with a single oar?  Or rowing with two oars? Sweep (one oar) or Scull (two oars?)  Actually, we think you’ll want to try BOTH!
