This is an adult program so registrants must be at least 18 years old. If you are interested in a Learn-to-Row program for someone under 18 there is a youth program.
Skill Development, Safety and Fun are the three principles underlying the Learn to Row (LTR) program at the Don Rowing Club. If you’ve been thinking about learning how to row this is the year to make it happen! Join the LTR program and experience the fun and friendships for which rowing is known. Our enthusiastic coaches will show you the way as a beginner, or add to your skills as a returning rower.
Each LTR session is 6 classes, and has classes on Mondays and Wednesdays. Your first two classes are indoors, learning basic technique using our erg machines and the indoor tank. Then you will be on the water and in boats of 4. Your coach will be in the boat with you providing guidance and feedback on your progress. Maximum of 12 participants per session. Cost $300 + HST.
