Youth Learn to Row is an introductory, coed, non-competitive program offering youth aged 12 to 18 a chance to try the sport of rowing on the Charles River. Learn to Row participants are introduced to the basics of the sport in a fun, engaging, safe environment. No prior rowing experience is required. Learn to Row provides a complete overview of the sport. Rowers are introduced to the basics of the sport, learning rowing terminology, how to handle the equipment, and the elements of proper rowing technique. Also covered as part of Learn to Row is coxing technique; boat safety; and concepts of physical well-being, including hydration, core strength, flexibility, and diet. Learn to Row uses rowing machines and rowing catamarans at the beginning of each session so that rowers can get a sense of the rowing stroke in a stable environment. By the end of Learn to Row, rowers will row in eight-person training shells. Participants have an opportunity at the end of each week to scrimmage in a friendly, intramural environment. Good attendance is crucial to safety and maximum learning. Rowers must attend all classes during the first two weeks of a term and are encouraged to choose another term if they cannot commit to a minimum of 80% class attendance overall. The goal of the program is to introduce new rowers to the fundamentals of sweep rowing and develop a solid foundation of skills in a fun, supportive environment. Participants will acquire the basics of the sport and develop a solid foundation of skills and knowledge of rowing, which they can then build upon in Crew League or a Competitive Novice program. The Learn to Row program is offered in the spring, during April vacation, pre-summer, summer, and fall, offering a variety of options to suit different schedules. Regular spring and fall sessions are six weeks and meet twice weekly for 90 minutes. April vacation is a one-week session, meeting M-F from 9 am-12 pm (including Patriots Day Monday). Summer learn to row sessions are one week and summer skills sessions are two weeks.
