Learn To Row Programs
All new members must complete a Learn to Row program before they can register in any other membership. Participants are encouraged to upgrade to a Competitive Membership or Sport Rec Memberships after completing one of the Learn to Row programs. The Learn to Row program fees will be applied towards the upgrade membership fee. A skills assessment determines whether an individual is sufficiently prepared to advance from this program into other programs.
High School Learn to Row Program
This program is for grade 6 - 12 students with limited or no previous rowing experience. Participants learn basic rowing techniques and terminology over 7 weeks. Classes typically begin the first week of May and continue until mid June – depending on weather and Spring conditions. Classes run Monday to Thursday each week from 4:00 to 5:30 PM. Participants will be notified of the exact starting date prior to the date classes begin. Participants will participate in a novice event at the Sprints Regatta the Regina Rowing Club will be hosting on June 9th.
Crew Challenge Learn to Row
The Crew Challenge Learn to Row is for individuals with no previous rowing experience. Participants learn basic rowing techniques and terminology over 9 sessions (2 on land and 7 on water). Crew Challenge training will begin the last week of April and will culminate in a series of fun races during the lunch break of the Sprints Regatta. Participants can register as a crew (8 members) or individually. Individual registrants will be assigned to a crew. Each crew will have their own coach and training times. Participants will have the option to continue rowing several times per week during the outdoor season for a small fee or upgrade to one of the club memberships.
