Learn to Row Day

The 16th-annual National Learn to Row Day sponsored by USRowing and Concept2 will take place on Saturday, June 3, 2017, from 1:30-4:30 in rowing clubs and health clubs throughout the United States. Competitive and recreational rowers range in age from 12 to over 90, so it is never too early or too late to take up the sport.  Genesee Rowing Club is joining the nation!  We are hosting free Learn to Row Day activities.

Come join the fun and learn about the sport of rowing in a condensed 1 hour session.  You will learn about the technique first on the rowing machine, then you will join 4 experienced rowers in an 8 person shell and try your skills on the water.   Sign up below!  Contact with questions.

Rowing, often referred to as crew in the United States,is a sport with origins back to Ancient Egyptian times. It is based on propelling a boat (racing shell) on water using oars. By pushing against the water with an oar, a force is generated to move the boat. The sport can be either recreational, where the focus is on learning the technique of rowing, or competitive, where athletes race against each other in boats. There are a number of different boat classes in which athletes compete, ranging from an individual shell (called a single scull) to an eight-person shell with coxswain(called a coxed eight).
