For new rowers, or those looking to improve your technique, consider taking a one-to-one private lesson. You will have access to our new state of the art Rowing Center and indoor rowing tanks.

Intro to Singles Sculling

1 hr class  Tues, Thurs, Sat 8:45AM  $35/class

For your personal safety it is important to be physically able to turn around and look over your shoulder to see behind you. For experienced rowers that are NEW to singles. These classes are designed for adults with fundamental rowing experience who would like a slightly slower pace than the regular Singles Sculling Classes. These courses will be run with a 2:1 student to coach ratio and the goal is to become familiar with the equipment, and steering. Our singles are stable and suitable for rowers who have one or more seasons of rowing experience.  The expectation is that rowers will be independent enough after three lessons to work with our 2 student to 1 teacher ratio.  If a participant needs or wants individual attention, we recommend private lessons or Learn to Row classes. In addition it is not uncommon to prefer to stay in this class due to the coaching ratio and enjoyment of the pace of the class.

During registration you simply choose the day and time you want to row and you may add dates to your cart before checkout. See below for Class Schedule and Registration dates.

Singles Sculling

1 hr class Monday-Saturday 6:15AM, 7:30AM, 8:45AM  $25/class

This class is designed for experienced scullers who have mastered the independence of launching their shell without assistance, and have gained confidence rowing in a single shell. The rower should need minimal guidance in steering and instruction on proper rowing technique.
