Rowing is one of the original Olympic sports of the modern games. Crews of between one and eight rowers compete in a variety of events, with the big eight boats drawing the largest crowds.
Rowing is a total body workout that only looks like an upper body sport. Although upper body strength is important, the strength of the rowing stroke comes mainly from the legs. Rowing is one of the few athletic activities that involves all of the body’s major muscle groups, is a great aerobic workout and has a low-impact on the joints.
Rowing is a sport that appeals to people of all ages and abilities. You can take part through the Learn to Row program or Recreational Rowing/ We offer several ways to take part from a Learn to Row program to Recreational rowing. Whether you’ve never rowed before or are looking to get back in a boat, please contact the rowing director.
