Learn to Row

Throughout the year, we offer Learn to Row sessions. We'll teach you the basics of rowing on a rowing machine and then you'll try out your new skills on the water.

Adult Rowing

We offer programming for UI students, faculty, staff, and community members. Athletes can compete as part of Hawkeye Community Rowing or practice with the team for exercise and to improve rowing skills.

Junior Rowing

We offer programming for juniors ages 12 and up. Rowing is a great sport to learn early - it's a full body workout, teaches teamwork, and there are many opportunities for collegiate rowing scholarships. Learn how to get involved here.

Special Events and Programs

Along with our adult, junior, and learn to row programs, we also offer Adaptive Rowing, a Winter Rowing program, and we host a variety of special events throughout the year.
