The Learn to Row fee is $110 per session. The fee includes a 2-month Lake Stevens Rowing Club Membership. A Float Test is required and obtainable through area pools at a small fee.


Learn to Row teaches the ABCs of the rowing stroke through the use of the rowing machine along with repetitive drills and motions of body sequencing on the water in a shell with experienced people to insure a steeper learning curve. Boat handling skills, vocabulary and commands will become 2nd nature in learning about the sport through this Beginner's class. LTR gives a solid basis from which to continue for recreation, cardio fitness, a longer term reach for race readiness, and an enjoyable camaraderie with team mates in LSRC.

Try Rowing is a 2 hour introduction to the basics of rowing, beginning with instruction on the rowing machine to learn body sequencing and then moving to a rowing shell with experienced people who will help to teach the mechanics of entering/exiting a shell at the dock before pushing away to experience the successful actions in moving your craft through the water. Try Rowing is free of charge
