Every year RIVERSPORT participates in USRowing’s National Learn to Row initiative by offering free Learn to Row lessons. It’s a great opportunity to see if you’d like to get into the sport of rowing! The 2024 event was a great success with 90 registrants and lots of action on the water. RIVERSPORT offers rowing lessons May through October; see more below.

Learn to Row Day is free, but registration is required. The event is open to ages 14 and older. Participants should wear comfortable clothes, athletic shoes & socks, and bring a hat, sunglasses, water bottle & sunscreen. Participants will start on ergs – land rowing machines – to learn the basic motion, then move to a rowing barge to get on the water.

If you’d like to continue with the sport, weekend-long Learn to Row classes for adults are available all summer; week-long rowing camps are offered for youth wanting to get into the sport. RIVERSPORT also offers both recreational and competitive rowing programs for youth and adults.
