Learn To Row at Argonaut Rowing Club
The Learn to Row program is designed to introduce participants to the sport of rowing in crew boats and teach proper sweep rowing technique for anyone that has no prior rowing experience. The program includes 10 hours (5 x 2h) of small group coaching and will cover equipment handling and safety, getting in/out of the boat, stroke sequence, rowing, backing, turning and docking.
