Put Down Your Phones & Pick Up An Oar!


strohmeyer learn to row 

Summer is great time to experience rowing on the Charles River! Our youth recreational summer programs offer boys and girls the chance to learn rowing for the first time, or to continue to develop their rowing skills! Summer Learn to Row and Summer Skills Development sessions meet Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM or 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM. Sessions begin in mid-June and run through the end of August.

"Life skills are taught here, not just rowing skills."


Both Learn to Row and Skills Development will include dry land training and awareness building activities; introducing athletes to the importance of hydration, diet, flexibility and core strength. Participants are introduced to basic measures of fitness and strength on the rowing machine and encouraged to work as a crew toward collective goals on the water. Rowers will have an opportunity to race at the end of each week in a friendly, intramural environment. The program will be taught in a fun and supportive environment with a goal of developing a solid foundation of skills.
