A Little Introduction to Rowing

You don’t need to have any prior experience to start rowing. The Edmonton Rowing Club offers learn-to-row classes every summer that are designed to teach you all the basic skills needed to become a competent oarsperson. These programs are open to adults over the age of 18 and youth between the ages of 13-17. No athletic ability is needed – this is a great introductory program if you are looking for a new sport. You will become acquainted with the basics of rowing movement, safety, terminology, and commands through on-land and on-water instruction.

Learn to Row Classes are Safe

Maintaining a safe rowing environment is very important to us. Every rowing student is provided with the use of a PFD (Personal Flotation Device). Occasionally, weather or river conditions will force us to reschedule or cancel a class, when storms, lightning, or high-water conditions pose a safety threat. The river flow generally peaks in late June. If your class is unable to row on the river due to unsafe conditions, we will make every effort to provide you with an indoor alternative and/or reschedule your class.
