Learn To Row

SCRC's Winter 2020 Learn To Row Class Is Full!

Whatever your reason for wanting to row - to get in shape, be out on the water, make friends, and/or eventually race – SCRC’s LTR class is where you start! If you are an adult (18 years & up) and have a desire to learn, we are here to teach you. The LTR class costs $250 and the focus will be on having fun and learning the basics. After successfully completing the LTR class, you will be encouraged to join the club and continue with coached sessions with a group of novice rowers. The club offers recreational and competitive levels of rowing participation as you progress.

SCRC's next Learn To Row class will start in January 2020. Registration for this class is now full; there are no more spots available. 

Are you interested in participating in a future LTR class at SCRC? Then please learn more by reviewing the  LTR Q&A  on this website.  As soon as the next LTR class is scheduled, information will be posted here on the SCRC website. Check back for further information!

Sarasota County Rowing Clubs (SCRC) Learn to Row Program (LTR) is designed for adults who are age 18 and up and interested in rowing. 

Each LTR session is arranged into classes which are not competitive. You will find that rowing is surprisingly interesting and challenging. It is a low impact sport with great physiological and mental benefits. 

After completing the class, we invite and encourage you to continue rowing with our Novice Skills and Drills program. We offer recreational and competitive levels of rowing participation as you progress and you will not need to purchase your own equipment to participate in the Sarasota County Rowing Club. Joining the club is easy. After completing the Learn to Row Program, you can become a member of SCRC by registering as a new member on the club's website. If you have any questions about joining please contact SCRC's  Membership Director.
