No experience needed. We will teach you the rowing stroke on land, and then head on to the Iowa River in boats. During this time, you will learn about the sport, how to carry equipment to and from the boathouse and dock, and then make the boats move on the water.    

This series builds off skills learned the previous session. You are highly encouraged to attend each day to get the most of the event, as well as help the group progress efficiently. 

All fitness and athletic backgrounds welcome. Dress in weather-appropriate clothing. Baggy clothing is discouraged due to the design of rowing equipment. Registration is required due to the number of seats in the boats. There are no refunds for cancellations three days prior to the event.
