2017 Learn-To-Row Spring Session Rockett's
Coach: Mason Brown
The Virginia Boat Club's Learn-To-Row program teaches adults how to sweep row in a rowing shell (4 or 8 person boats with a coxswain). The program consists of twelve classes, approximately 90-minute each.
In the class students will learn proper rowing technique both on indoor rowing machines and on the water. Students will learn parts of the stroke, blade technique as well as rowing terminology and boat safety. In the event of rain, classes will be held indoors.
For each class bring water to stay hydrated. Form fitting clothing is best, as baggy clothing can get caught in the sliding seat as you row. You will also need athletic shoes and sports socks.
The twelve classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:00 PM and on Saturday mornings at 7:30 AM beginning Saturday April 29th. There will be no class on Saturday May 13 or Saturday May 27th or Monday May 29th.
