Learn To Row

Learn to Row Poster
Spring is in the Air – but so is COVID-19!

The SRRA Board is still planning our summer activities and keeping an eye on the Governor’s plan for reopening WA.  Learn to Row typically happens in late June or early July, so we are hopeful that we will be able to offer LTR classes.  When they happen, our Learn to Row courses for 2020 will likely continue the model from the past few years, and will be comprised of classes that are 2-weeks long  composed of four weekday classes and a Saturday morning session each week.

Registrants will pick the class that best fits their schedule (each class covers the same basic skills and includes both dry-land and on-water sessions).  We had good success with this format and we hope this compressed format will be a better fit for participants busy summer schedules.

These summer sessions are for men and women (age 18 and older) who are interested in trying a new sport and adding a fun dimension to their summer schedule.  If you are looking for junior rowing, please check with Coeur d’Alene Rowing at CDArowing.org.

Each two-week session will be made up of lessons on the ergometer (rowing machine) and on-the-water sessions in actual rowing shells! You will learn the basics of the rowing stroke as well as how to use the indoor machine to train on your own.   Basic boathouse terminology and boat/oar handling skills will also be part of your experience and you will receive a free SRRA t-shirt.

    • Cost ~ $200 for the evening and ~ $175 for the morning two-week sessions (prices subject to change)
    • All registrants must be 18 or older by the end of 2020.
    • For two or more registrants in the same family, the second family member is half price! 
    • Location:  the GU Boathouse see directions here.


  • Added benefits:
    • Free SRRA t-shirt Please indicate your size when registering
      • note… Men’s sizes tend to run a bit large so choose the next size smaller (a M – Lg fits a 220 lb male that normally wears XL)
    • If you choose to continue rowing for the summer and fall (and we hope you do!), we waive the usual Annual Membership Dues (a $100 value).
    • To continue rowing after the Learn to Row class you will only need to pay the monthly fees ($100) or purchase a punch card ($125 for 10 sessions). 


  • Pick the class that works best with your schedule.  You will be able to register online using PayPal (a PayPal account is not needed).
