The Introduction to Rowing (Learn to Row I) and Learn to Row II 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 II class. (Introduction to Rowing is a prerequisite for Learn to Row II.) After that, they are encouraged to join ORC, where they can further their training and rowing technique development.
All Learn to Row Classes are complete for 2013. Please check back for Spring 2014 dates!
