Rowing is a dynamic sport that fosters strengthening of the body and the mind in a supportive and team-oriented environment. This year, we are offering a Learn to Row series to get you out on the water and involved in the sport you have been waiting to try! You will learn rowing terms, how to carry boats and oars, how to erg on land and row on the water, and then get to work with others on the water to move the boats.

The series is held for three Sundays this fall. It is recommended that you attend all 3 sessions:

  • Sept. 18: 7 a.m.–10 a.m.
  • Sept. 25: 7 a.m.–9 a.m.
  • Oct. 2: 7 a.m.–9 a.m.

All fitness levels and athletic backgrounds can learn to row. Just be ready to learn and try something fun and new! Wear fitted athletic apparel, sunscreen, and hat and sunglasses. Bring a water bottle. Baggy clothing is highly discouraged due to the design of rowing equipment.

After completing this session, you can join the Adult and/or UI (University of Iowa) Student Rowing programs.
