Adult Learn to Row: Session #4

3 week class (9 practices): $200
Add to My CalendarJul 20-Aug 08, 2020
Last Date to register: Sunday, July 19th, 2020

River City Rowing Club invites adults with no rowing experience to join a Learn to Row class and experience this engaging team sport.


Learn to Row introduces the fundamentals of rowing in single person boats, focusing on the technique and execution of the sculling rowing stroke, as well as rowing commands, boat handling, and boat handling on the water. Rowing machines are used to practice technical concepts with group instruction and individual attention.


The program progressively challenges new rowers resulting in a dramatic learning curve. Courses are co-ed and coached in a supportive and slightly competitive team manner. No previous rowing experience is necessary!


Coach Arthur Ericsson has more than 20 years of coaching experience with adult, collegiate and high school rowing. Participants who complete the three week classes are encouraged to keep rowing on the RCRC Novice Masters team. 


Dates & Times

  • July 20-Aug 8, 2020
  • Mondays & Wednesdays, 5:15-7:15am

  • Saturdays, 8:00-10:15am



Due to the dramatic learning curve, participants should register for the session in which they will be able to attend all of the practices. Attendance at the first practice is mandatory.



Taking consecutive Learn to Row classes is usually not usually recommended. The standard progression is that new rowers move onto the Novice Masters team, designed specifically for all Learn to Row graduates to keep on growing and rowing.
