The first week concentrates on body positioning on a rowing machine, oar handling, and on-water rowing in a 16-person training boat. The second week focuses on sculling with two oars in a 4-person boat. The course goal is to learn skills necessary to continue rowing for fitness and fun.
The class includes 7 sessions, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday over a 2 week period, with the final class meeting rowing with members of DRC on a Saturday morning. Sessions are held during June and July.
A Refresher Class offers adults who have taken a learn to row class in the past or have had previous rowing experience the opportunity to brush up on their rowing technique. This is 4 session class offered in early June.
Participants wear workout clothing that won’t get caught in a sliding rowing seat, tennis/running shoes (not sandals), and dress in layers, as Park Point weather varies.
