What is Learn to Row (LTR)?

The Learn to ROW course will teach you everything needed to give you the skills and confidence to be able to feel safe, have fun, and enjoy your rowing.

When is it?

Learn to ROW training sessions are held over a four-week period (12 sessions) from Tuesday 29 August – Saturday 23 September 2023. Anyone who is currently at secondary school is able to register. The training sessions are at the following times:

  • Tuesdays and Thursdays 5.00 – 7.00pm
  • Saturdays 8.00 – 10.00am 

This includes time to get boats on/off the water, warmup and stretching. As you get faster at moving around and getting into boats, on-water sessions would normally take 1.5hours. If it is too rough to row, land training is about 1 hour.

What you need to do (committment)

Please be aware when registering for the Learn to ROW course you are committing to these training sessions for four weeks. This will give you the opportunity to learn the skills and gain an understanding of the commitment that the 2023-24 Novice Squad season will require.

Rowing is also a team sport. If you are sick or are going to be late notify your coach. If coaches are kept informed, they can make the necessary changes.
