AARC's Learn to Row (LTR) classes are designed for adults of all ages (minimum age - must be entering 9th grade, or older) and abilities with no previous rowing experience. Many AARC club members learned to row in one of our classes!  Classes are scheduled throughout the spring and early summer, and prepare rowers for AARC’s Technical Rowing program.

There are no minimum physical requirements for taking a Learn to Row class.
What to expect
LTR starts on land with training on Concept2 rowing machines. Once the new students are comfortable with the basics they move to an eight person boat, giving them the chance to row as a crew and apply everything they have learned. There is no training or fitness level necessary for this class. Learn to Row Intro Packet

Rowing after LTR   
LTR graduates become AARC Novice members in the year they graduate (the membership runs through the end of October). You are invited to join our Technical Sweep Program and continue gaining physical fitness and rowing skills through technique-focused coaching. If you transition directly from LTR to Technical Sweep, monthly Technical Sweep rowing fees apply after your first month.

AARC endeavors to make rowing accessible to the broad community.  Scholarships are available to those with financial need to support participation.
