Learn to Row Events
Throughout the year, East Bay Rowing Club invites the community to participate in Learn to Row events. No knowledge of rowing is necessary, and adults of all ages and fitness levels are encouraged to attend. Our primary event is held on the first Saturday of June, which is National Learn to Row Day, when we hold a three-hour class on parts of the boat, rowing terminology, and the rowing stroke (practicing on an erg), and rowing in our barge. After attending the session, interested participants can join the club as beginner rowers. Our coaching staff is experienced in training novice to advanced rowers.
We hold focused Learn to Row events throughout the year for corporations, military veterans, and other groups. Please contact us to schedule an event, or to learn about the next scheduled introductory session.
