Private Instruction
A personalized private lesson is a great way to develop your skill. Our certified rowing instructors will give you one-on-one lessons tailored to your individual goals and needs, whether you are a beginner or looking to refine your skill. Private instruction is for you if you are looking to: 

  • Learn to row but can’t make a class or would rather an individual setting (five private lessons satisfies requirements to join a team-based program).

  • Gain confidence in a single scull

  • Receive individualized coaching

  • Switch up your usual rowing routing

  • Improve your technique, fitness and results

Semi-Private & Group Instruction
Do you like the benefits of group rowing but want the individualized attention of private instruction. Semi-private and group lessons give you the best of both worlds. By rowing together in a double (semi-private) or a quad (group), your coach will be able to focus on the dynamics of your boat as you work to not only improve your own technique but combine as a team to create an effective,dynamic stroke and boat speed. Group instruction is also great for:

  • Sharing the sport of rowing with a friend

  • Creating your own rowing group & time

  • Dropping in for a weekend when visiting in the area

  • Experiencing the waterway and meeting the staff before committing to a program
