The Introduction to Rowing and Learn to Row introductory classes offer participants an orientation to sweep rowing equipment, demonstration of basic rowing stroke, boat handling and safety. The goal of the introductory program is to develop a solid foundation in preparation for the Novice Sweep Program. (“Novice” is an official category for purposes of competition that denotes one year’s rowing experience or less.)

After participants complete the Introduction to Rowing program they should continue with the Learn to Row class. (Introduction to Rowing is a prerequisite for Learn to Row.) After that, they are encouraged to join ORC, where they can further their training and rowing technique development.

Early summer sessions are complete.  Check back for an updated schedule.

REGISTRATION:  Introduction to Rowing, $90;  Learn to Row, $135.  Classes will be from 6-8 p.m. on weekdays and from 9-11 a.m. on weekend days.  A class must have 8 participants to move forward, so register now!  Registration and payment may be done on

PREREQUISITE: No experience is required for Introduction to Rowing. Introduction to Rowing is a prerequisite for Learn to Row. Must be 18 years old and able to swim. High school and college students may take the program during the summer.
