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 early fall. Our curated, small classes allow the coaches to focus on the needs of each individual rower.
