To receive an email announcing the course dates, use the form on the Adult Program Contact page.
Fee for the on-water course is $100 per person. Participants learn safety, boat handling, and the proper stroke technique, starting on a rowing machine, also called an "erg" (short for ergometer). Participants are on the water rowing with teammates by day 2.
Consistent with current pandemic safety protocols, masks are required. Participants should wear comfortable but not loose-fitting clothes. Bring a water bottle, a small towel, and a pair of socks to wear in the boat. Those who wish to join the club's novice rowing program after the course will have their learn-to-row fees deducted from the season's dues. (Novice dues are typically $250 per season without the discount.)
