The Greater Columbus Rowing Association will be offering LEARN TO ROW classes starting June 1st.
Rowing a great way to stay fit, meet people, and compete locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. (Thanks to competitive age handicaps, it's one of the few sports where it's good to get older!)
Under the supervision of experienced coaches and coxswains, you will receive a complete introduction to the sport with focus on proper technique, boat-handling, and safety. No prior rowing experience is necessary; however, the ability to get up and down into a squatting position and fit in a narrow rowing shell is helpful. Classes meet twice weekly for six weeks (morning and evening classes available).
In LTR I, you will learn to scull (row with two oars). In LTR II, you will learn to sweep (row with a single oar). Participants must complete LTR I in order to proceed to LTR II. After completing both LTR I and II, participants are welcome to join GCRA as a member. Various opportunities and programs are available within the club to help you continue to build your skills and meet your rowing goals.
GCRA requires that Learn to Row participants be 18 years or older and pass a swimming and physical test to ensure the proper safe environment during the sessions. Class sizes are limited; please register early to ensure a seat.
