Learn to Row Clinics are designed for adults and high school students who have never rowed before and are enthusiastic to try a new activity. Minors (under age 18) need a parent or guardian present to sign a waiver. Participants learn rowing technique, boat handling, rowing vocabulary, safety, and teamwork. Indoor rowing machines (ergs), a state-of-the-art rowing tank, and racing shells are used.
