Learn to Row

Learn all you need to know about the Edmonton Rowing Club Learn to Row program.

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 instruct all the basic skills needed to become a competent oarsman. This program is open to adults over the age of 18 and athletic ability – this is a great introductory program if you are looking for a new sport in which to get into shape. You will be acquainted with the basics of rowing movement, safety, terminology, and commands through on-land and on-water instruction.

Adult Learn to Row sessions are subject to river & weather conditions.

– – – – –

Maintaining a safe rowing environment is very important to us.  Occasionally weather or river conditions will force us to reschedule or cancel a class, when storms 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 classes.
