Learn to Row

Learn to Row

The Learn to Row course is an entry level course suitable for adults 18+ of all ability levels. There are 10 sessions for each course. Some of these 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.   

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/

Our current course is completely full and runs up to Christmas.  The  next Learn to Row courses will start after Easter in Spring 2018.   If you would like to be sent details when they become available please email  celia.price@justchecking.co.uk 


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 6-12 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.


Individual private lessons (18+ only)

One-to-one lessons are available on weekday mornings and weekends after 12noon. Lessons are with a qualified British Rowing coach and cost £50 per 1.5 hour session. When you have grasped the skills needed, you will be able to scull with one of our daytime groups. If you would like to buy a rowing experience for a loved one, we offer gift vouchers, valid for one year,  for any number of lessons.
Please send an suabcadmin@sky.com to say whether you would prefer a weekday or weekend lesson and we will put you in touch with a coach.
