2017 National Learn to Row Day

Posted by on May 1, 2017 in Coaches, General, News | 0 comments

 

WHO? Anyone 12 years of age or older who has EVER wanted to give rowing a try.

WHAT? An annual event sponsored by USRowing that takes place at rowing clubs across the country.

WHEN? Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 from 9:30a-11a.

WHERE? Whitemarsh Boat Club at Hines Rowing Center in Conshohocken, PA (but if you are out of state you should Google “National Learn to Row Day” to see if there is a participating club near you!)

WHY? To increase the public’s exposure to our crazy, cool sport. Here in the Philadelphia area we know TONS of people see the “skinny little boats” gliding up & down the rivers & have wondered what it is like to actually give it a try, but as most boat clubs are private & open only to members it isn’t as easy as one may think. By participating in this annual event you can experience the sport & see if it is something you want to pursue. Hint, hint- we also offer adult learn to row programs so if you fall in love with being out on the water we’ve got you covered!
