Chevron Learn to Row
A Chevron Learn to Row Program Information and Registration Session will be held on Thursday, August 24 at 7:30PM at the Boathouse. This is for anyone interested in learning to row for the Fall. We will no longer be accepting registrations after Friday, September 1.
Those unable to attend can obtain a registration form from the website and can drop it off at the Shell House during operating hours.
Full crews of six are preferred, but we will also try to put crews together once registration closes.
Starting on Tuesday, August 29, we will continue to provide training for new rowers wishing to participate in the sport of fixed-seat rowing through our Chevron Learn to Row Program. The goal of this program is to provide a free opportunity for community members to try fixed-seat rowing and potentially participate in the Fall Regatta.
If you are a new rower with a full crew (six rowers), or an individual rower looking to get your foot in the door to create a new group, this program may be what you are looking for!
We will teach participants the fundamentals of fixed-seat rowing and provide a comprehensive understanding of the rowing operations at Quidi Vidi Lake. This includes individual and group sessions, Rowing and Boat Orientation, Technical Rowing Instruction and on-water mentoring.
Do you want to increase your physical activity level, be a part of a long-standing tradition in St. John’s and think this program may be for you? For more information on how to get started, contact our Chevron Learn to Row Coordinator at [email protected]
Please fill out the application and waiver form to participate.
The program is open to participants of all age categories and fitness levels.
