2020 Learn-to-Row Schedule postponed for now

Learn to Row 2 postponed

For 2019, the Winnipeg Rowing Club is offering an intermediate, or Level 2 version of our Learn-to-Row program.  This program is designed for athletes who have previously taken the Learn-to-Row Program, but don’t feel they’re quite ready to jump into doing a 10 km row with the Recreational group.  Pricing is based on having had taken a Level 1 Learn-to-Row during the current on-water season, as it does not include the Provincial and National Association fees charged for the Level 1 program.  Athletes who have taken the Learn-to-Row Program in a previous year would need to add those fees to their cart before completing with checkout.  For those who wish to continue rowing at the club (generally with the Recreational program) after having taken the Learn-to-Row-Two Program, the fees from this program will be credited towards the cost of the Learn-to-Row Graduate program ($325.50).
