Masters Spring 2017
During the Spring Quarter from March 1-May 31, we offer both land and water based programs for LWRC members. Take a look at the Spring 2017 Schedule and the descriptions of our offerings below. There are great programs available in the morning and the evening. There are primarily sculling classes in the morning and a mix of sculling and sweep classes in the evening. If you are a little rusty and are wanting a slower introduction back into sculling, our Learn to Row Next Strokes class is an excellent intro back.
We also offer a Spring program for Juniors: one for those that have rowed before and a Junior Learn to Row. Check out our Juniors page for more information.
