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 seven 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 in Gateshead 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. We aim to integrate all people who have completed our course into the club as members and provide more coaching and support so they can enjoy being rowers.
