Learn to Row

Learn to Row

If you haven’t rowed before, or you last rowed years ago, this introduction to rowing course is for you.  The course is suitable for adults of all ability levels.  The course runs in two 6 week stages, so you can decide at the mid-point if you want to progress to stage 2. 

Stage 1  Thursday mornings  9:30am – 11:00am , cost £95

Session dates:  Thursday April 19th, 26th, May 3rd 10th 17th 24th

Stage 2  Thursday mornings  9.30 – 11.00 am , cost £120

Session dates:  Thursday June 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, July 5th, 12th.

Course sessions may be indoors, learning technique on the indoor rowing machines, but most sessions (subject to safe river and weather conditions) will be on the water, leaning to row in a variety of different types of boats.

Sorry, but our current coaching capacity means we are unable to offer a weekend Learn to Row course this spring.

If you are under 18, we run a series of ‘learn to row’ camps in the summer holidays. http://www.stratford-rowing.co.uk/summer-camps/

On completion of the course

These courses are an introduction to the sport only and do not guarantee membership of the club.  Once you’ve completed the course, we’ll discuss what the club has to offer that would be suitable for you. You can expect to take part in a novice group for at least 9-12 months, and there are opportunities to take part in fun regattas and events.   We try to maintain a balanced membership of Juniors, Seniors and Masters members as well as recreational groups.
