Do you want to Learn-to-Row in 2023?

The Spokane River Rowing Association (SRRA) strives to make rowing accessible to people of every background and ability; and promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion in all we do.

Learn-to-Row summer sessions are for anyone (age 18 and older) who is interested in trying a new sport and adding a fun dimension to their summer schedule. Swimming skills are important, but SRRA will provide personal flotation devices for less competent swimmers.

SRRA likely be conducting our 2023 Learn-to-Row classes during the month of July, final schedule is TBA. Please let us know your interest by sending an email with your contact information to Interested in LTR.

Learn to Row sessions include coached lessons on the ergometer (rowing machine) and on-the-water sessions in eight and four person rowing shells! We cover rowing stroke and boat safety, basic boathouse terminology, boat and oar handling skills, with the majority of the class focused on rowing stroke technique on the rowing machine and in the boat with other rowers. Participants also receive a Spokane River Rowing tech T-shirt (value $25). Current SRRA rowers offer mentorship and welcome new rowers to continue to learn with them on the water for the remainder of the summer.
