About Learn to Row 2017
The Learn to Row class will have a new format this year.  Each class session will be limited to 8 students and the class duration will be for 2 weeks.  The smaller class size will allow for a more focused and concentrated learning experience.  Due to the limited class size a sign-up and registration in advance will be required.  If interest is high we may also offer another session later in the month of May but at this time this is not planned.  A students 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 April 24th.

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.

COXSWAIN SOLICITATION:
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 less than 130 pounds (or close to), 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 at info@lbvrc.org
