Learn to Row

Next course commences 13 March 2018

RRC has a strong background in teaching people to row and runs regular Learn To Row programs during the year.

We will be running 4 weeks courses over the summer on Tuesday evenings.

The next course will begin on Tuesday 13th March 2018 for a period of 4 weeks. The course is popular and is filling fast so we would highly recommend you contact us as early as possible to secure your seat.

Note that we run a number of Learn to Row courses over the summer and winter so let us know if this date is not suitable and we will confirm our future sessions.

If you would like to express your interest in our next course, or find out more, please email our  Learn to Row Co-ordinator.

Program Outline

Four sessions, each lasting approximately 2 hours will equip you with enough rowing basics for you to join a social or competitive beginner crew.

During the sessions you will:

  • Master the basics of rowing
  • Learn the rowing terminology
  • Learn to row in a crew of four

The courses will be held on Tuesday evenings between 6pm & 8pm. Make sure you arrive by 5:45pm to ensure a prompt start. NB. Week one may take a little longer as it includes safety and off water demonstrations.

What next? The Development Squad (DS)

At Learn to Row you will have made new friends and developed a lasting enjoyment of rowing – you may even decide that you’d like to continue rowing and join our club. So what’s next?

You will be invited to join the club as a member of the Development Squad (DS). The Development Squad training program continues where the Learn to Row course leaves off. Unlike many other clubs, this program is included in membership fees, and is specifically tailored to those that have learned the basics of rowing, and want to improve their technique.
