Chevron Learn to Row
Starting on Monday, August 22, 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 establish a team to compete in the Royal St. John’s 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 LTR@stjohnsregatta.com. You can also drop by the Boathouse at 10 Clancey Drive between 4:00PM and 8:00PM, Monday to Friday.
Please fill out the application and waiver form to participate.
The program is open to participants of all age categories and fitness levels.
