About Learn to Row 2019

The Learn to Row class will have a limited number of student slots available (as determined by the instructor) and the class duration will be for 3 weeks.  Due to the limited class size a sign-up, registration, and payment in advance will be required.  If interest is high enough the club may offer other class alternatives (such as Tuesday & Thursday classes), but at this time this is not planned.  A student's slot is only confirmed when a registration form is completed and the non-refundable $50 course fee is paid.  Registration and enrollment will take place at the open house on May 1st.

Rowing may look easy and graceful when watched from the shore, but it is a challenging sport to do.  Rowing requires a great deal of agility, coordination, focus, concentration, discipline, and physical effort.  Learn to row class participants must be injury free, over 16 years old, able to swim, capable of lifting 30 pounds over head, and generally fit and agile.

If you have a larger group of people interested in trying rowing (such as friends, family, or a business looking to set up a team-building opportunity), contact the club to see if a special session can be set up for you.

After completing the Learn-to-Row class, participants will be able to join the club for the rest of the summer at a membership rate of $75.

The rowing club is also looking for individuals who would like to join the club as full time coxswains.  Coxswains are members of the crew that steer the boats and provide commands, feedback, and direction to the rowers.  The ideal coxswain candidate should be smaller in stature, able to fit in the coxswain compartment, with a weight around 130 pounds (give or take), have good communication skills, be mature & responsible, and be at least 16 years old. 
Being a coxswain can be a challenging duty especially when sitting in a cold, wet boat at o’dark thirty in the morning.  But the coxswain position does provide an opportunity to build personal skills, such as: becoming more assertive, developing coaching & leadership experience, learning boat handling skills, improving your decision making abilities, and being part of a team.

Approved candidates will receive training, instruction, and hands-on experience; free membership to the club which includes the use of the rowing machines during winter workouts; and the opportunity to participate in and join the rowing community in an active role. 

If you are interested or would like more information on being a coxswain, then contact the club by email at
