All of our learn to row classes are open to people with little or no rowing experience. Our small class sizes allow the coaches to focus on the needs of each individual rower. 

Lake Washington offers Learn to Row in the spring, summer, and fall.

Summer Learn to Row - Race Camp

This program is an 8-week training regimen with an opportunity to race at the Green Lake Regatta in August. Program is open to those who have never rowed before, interested in learning to sweep row, and race in 8-person boats. Program is 3 times a week and is limited to 18 participants. This is a great chance for those that have previously taken a LTR Sculling class and have always wanted to have the chance to race in sweep boats. Grab a group of friends and race at a local regatta!
