Learn to Row

It’s a great art, is rowing. It’s the finest art there is. It’s a symphony of motion. And when you’re rowing well, why it’s nearing perfection. And when you reach perfection you’re touching the divine. It touches the you of you’s, which is your soul.
–George Pocock

Rowing encompasses so many benefits — fitness, socializing, recreation, and competition — and guess what it’s never too late to start.  

Swan Creek Rowing Club’s popular Learn to Row (LTR) program is the starting point for anyone interested in the sport. Participants are taught all the fundamentals of the stroke and are introduced to the basic skill set used to coordinate movements within the boat. Emphasis is on learning in a fun, pressure-free environment.

For more information or to put your name on the adult LTR wait list, contact the Learn To Row Coordinator.

If you are under 18 years old and/or not in your senior year of high school, then please go to our youth LTR page.

Other things to know: 

    • Swimming ability is required.
    • Rowing attire is close-fitting shorts or pants and a t-shirt; additional layers depending on weather; gym shoes for land sessions; water sandals for walking in the water for launching and returning; socks for in the boat.
    • Participants must be 18 years or older. (SCRC has separate youth LTR clinics; see the youth LTR page.)

Thank you for your interest in the Swan Creek Rowing Club!  We hope you’ll join us.
