The Adult Learn to Row program is for people 18 or older with no prior rowing experience, and for fixed seat rowers interested in joining the slide-seat community. 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.
The Adult LTR program will run 3 training sessions per week for ten weeks from June 28 through September 5, on Monday and Friday evenings 6:30 to 8:00 and Sunday mornings 9:00 to 11:00. Should weather conditions not permit on-water activities, dryland skills, boat basics or fitness training will take place at the SJRC boathouse or the erg room at the same times.
A swim test is not required for adult rowing programs; however, when you join you must confirm that you can swim well and will be comfortable if your boat flips and you find yourself in the water.
