All of our learn to row classes are open to adults with little or no rowing experience. We teach new rowers to scull in stable, single boats so they can more quickly understand the mechanics of rowing - gaining flexibility and independence for their future endeavors in the sport!
Lake Washington offers Learn to Row Sculling in the spring, summer, and sometimes early fall. Our curated, small classes allow the coaches to focus on the needs of each individual rower. We also offer private lessons to those who wish to fast-track their learning or need more flexibility in scheduling.

To quote elite coxswain, Pete Cipollone, at the Head of the Charles 1997 (17:41 on recording)... "COMMI-I-I-I-I-IT!"
If you have not already created an account in Mindbody for LWRC, set that up that now.
For on-water instruction, you will need to pass a float test which can be performed at a local pool. If you have a scuba or lifeguard certification you can upload a copy of that in lieu of a float test.
You will also need to sign and upload a LWRC waiver.
The documents section of Mindbody is where the forms should go when complete.
