YOUTH ROWING

Calendar icon

Rowing is a pure team sport. In a boat, working together is the difference between having a good row and having a great one. At PVRC, the bonds that form in a boat continue on land. Join in grade 8 to 12 to try rowing. It may stay with you for life.

No experience required. In this semi-private coaching session, 4 participants learn from 1 coach the basics of the rowing stroke in a club-provided stable, one-person training boat (a “single”). Rowers become familiar with the parts of the rowing shell, oars, and riggers as well as learn how to launch and sit in the boat on their own. Our hope is that you’ll fall in love with the sport and repeat the class or graduate to a racing shell or the next program level! Age 13+.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONs

What should I bring and wear?


Wear athletic clothes, and bring a hat, and water bottle. Clothes should be snug fitting, non-cotton. Shoes are required, and they might get wet.

Your session will happen if the forecast calls for rain, please dress appropriately, in layers if needed, but not cotton as it just gets heavy and soggy.
