SEssion DETAILS

If you've always wanted to join a rowing team, this class is the place to start. Although there is no obligation to join the club, after completing Learn to Row, participants have the option to join the Minnesota Boat Club and continue rowing as a member of the Novice team.​ But, for now, this class will introduce you to all aspects of rowing technique.

We will start by teaching you good technique, and then (in the nicest possible way!) make sure you use it. We will also consistently use "real" rowing terminology so that if you do continue, you will already speak the language.  Understanding what your coach wants you to do is an essential first step towards being able to learn and adjust while out on the water. Once basic technique has been established on our indoor rowing machines, the class will move to the water where participants will progress their technique using our stable training boats. If participant technique and class timeline permits, the class will conclude with time in a real rowing shell!
