We have two options to start learning to row:
Rowing Fitness Class
Mondays and Thursdays January-March 5:30-7:30pm
Learn to Row Class*
5:30 - 7:30pm Thursdays in April & May
Both for $300
This is the best method to learn, as each program is designed to build off the other
There are no refunds as we are a small non-profit and have to pay for every individual.
You will also be required to be a member of US Rowing which is about $25 + inflation for 2024. We will discuss more about that on the 1st class. All classes occur in Riverview park in Independence. Some activities are inside a barn type building, and some are outside. Please dress in layers for the weather and bring a raincoat.
Lessons are river level and weather dependent.
