Learn 2 Row
try it, it could be the best decision of your life
At Petone Rowing Club we provide the opportunity to take part in a 12 week fully coached Learn to Row course. We host two or three of these courses per year depending on interest, for both adults and juniors.
The aim of the course is to provide you with the information and instruction needed to get you safely out on the water and starting to enjoy rowing and possibly even racing. We are very passionate about our sport and feel we have all of the experience and equipment required to help you achieve your goals.
During the course we aim to teach you the terminology required to be able to row and scull successfully, as well as the technique and instructions required to be safe around the boathouse and on the water. After you finish your Learn 2 Row course you will in most cases be offered the opportunity to join Petone Rowing Club.
Throughout these sessions, the squad will:
Learn how to row on the erg and in a boat
Learn how to handle boats on and off the water
Introduce you to the sport of rowing in a way that is fund, but also challenging
Ensure that you are safe at all times and that you are aware of how you keep yourself safe on the and off the water
Get you to a stage here you can row confidently in a crew
Provide you with information on how you continue with rowing either as a Novice or in another LTR programme.
Most of all, have fun!
