Learn to Row with Gateshead CRC
Our Learn to Row courses are aimed at complete novices of all ages and abilities and are run by qualified rowing coaches.
The course consists of six sessions, each of two hours where you will be coached in rowing and sculling technique in stable training boats.
Much of the course will be on the sheltered and calm River Derwent which is ideal for beginners, before moving on to the River Tyne.
By the end of the course you will have the basic skills so you can join in training sessions at the club and develop as a rower.
Whether you want to compete, row recreationally or do both, we think it is very important that you have fun!
Our Learn to Row programme is very popular and we only run small courses so you can gain from lots of one-to-one coaching.
Our sliding seat rowing courses are now full - however please contact us if you are interested in rowing in our fixed seat coastal skiffs or joining in with our daytime community rowing sessions 1 to 3pm each Thursday.
