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.
