Late Summer and Fall Session
All of our learn to row classes are open to people with little or no rowing experience. Our small class sizes allow the coaches to focus on the needs of each individual rower and help them learn at their own pace.
Learn to Row Sculling
Coach: Meghan Ricci | All sessions Monday & Wednesday 6:45- 8:15 am | $220
Learn to Row Express
Coaches: Ron Lorentsen, Teri Randall, and Amy Hildebrant | Morning and evening classes available | $220
This program is for those that have always wanted to try rowing and experience what the sport has to offer in a jam-packed month. The program runs 4 weeks long and meets 3 times a week. Participants will learn the basics of the rowing stroke, starting in stable one-person boats, and have the chance to row in 2-,3-, or 4- person boats as the weeks progress. Each class will build on skills from the previous classes and give the participants a chance to also gain confidence to continue on in one of the LWRC’s Masters programs.
Each session is limited to 6 students. It is important to attend all of the classes to progress with your fellow rowers. If you must miss a class, please let your coach know beforehand. We are only offering two evening sessions in May and June and one morning session in August.
Learn to Row Sweep
Coach: Teddi McGuire | Monday & Wednesday 6:30- 8:15 pm | $220
If you’ve never rowed before and have wanted to row in the big team boats you see out in the Seattle waterway on a daily basis, come join LWRC’s Learn to Row Sweep program. This is a great program for those who enjoy working out with a group of like-minded individuals or those that have always wanted to try rowing but weren’t sure about the smaller one-person boats. During the length of the class, participants will learn the basics of sweep rowing, boat handling, and the joys of rowing in an 8-person boat. There will also be sessions where the group will mix with current LWRC members to enhance the experience.
The LTR Sweep program runs 8 weeks long, twice a week, and is limited to 10 participants. Grab a friend or two or three and take the class together! Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all sessions; however, missing a session or two is understandable, just let the coach know beforehand.
