Adult Learn to Row

The Learn to Row program for adults of 18 years of age or older is a new SJRC program offering, starting July 2, 2019 and running through the end of August.

This program provides an opportunity for adults with no slide seat rowing experience to learn to row. Participants will have the opportunity to row in a variety of racing shells, including one, two, four, and eight-person shells, as their skills progress. Rowers with fixed seat rowing experience are strongly encouraged to use this program as a means to join the slide-seat rowing community.

The Adult LTR program will run 3 training sessions per week from July 2 to the end of August.  The practice schedule is on our home page.  Should weather conditions not permit on-water activities, dryland skills, boat basics or fitness training will still take place at the SJRC boathouse according to the established schedule.

A swim test is not required for adult rowing programs; however, by joining you are confirming that you can swim well and will be comfortable if your boat flips and you find yourself in the water.
