We offer two types of Learn to Row courses: Junior and Adult.

Adult Learn to Row

We teach the basic technique and Rowing knowledge needed to start in the sport, we’ll increase your confidence, boost and hone your fitness, and provide a route into competitive or recreational rowing. The course takes place over 10 Weeks with 2-3 sessions per week (Saturday afternoon, Tuesday or Thursday Evening).

Rowing is a truly inclusive sport. It’s fun, friendly, addictive and it’s never been easier to have a go!

"I joined the rowing club as I had recently moved to the area and thought it was a good way of meeting like-minded people. Since starting here 18 months ago I have become part of the mens squad competing at various up-country events and have enjoyed every part of the club, both the competitive and social side.

Junior Learn to Row

This course is aimed at juniors aged 11-18 to participate in all things rowing. The course takes place during the school holidays from 9am-4am, Mon-Fri. Participants will spend the majority of their time on the water in single sculls, mixed doubles or quads. They will spend sessions on the rowing machine and will also take part in circuits. We put a strong emphasis on learning good technique, this helps to prevent injuries and also ensures a solid understanding of the sport. Sport should be lots of fun, and of course, we aim to deliver this too!
