Learn to Row

Interested in learning to row with VBC?

The Virginia Boat Club offers Learn-to-Row classes each spring. Each class consists of 12 sessions approximately 90-minute each. Sessions fill up quickly, so advanced registration is highly recommended! For registration information, Visit the the Registration page.

The Learn-to-Row program focuses on sweep rowing. For more information, see our SWEEP vs SCULLING page.

Rowers will learn proper blade technique, body position, and teamwork to enjoy the thrill, power, and speed of rowing. Depending on availability, the course will culminate in novice racing at a local/regional regatta.

VBC is a master's rowing club, primarily for rowers age 21 and over although we do accept members as young as 18. Youth rowing for high school age athletes is currently offered by James River High School and the River City Crew.

Lessons are taught at the Downtown Boathouse at Rockett's Landing and Robious Landing.

Graduates from the Learn To Row sweep program are encouraged to join VBC and continue their rowing experience. Click here for more information: Becoming a VBC Member after LTR.
