National Learn to Row Day is held nationwide on the first Saturday in June. This will give you a quick glimpse of rowing and allow you to learn the rowing stroke both on land, and in boats on the river.    

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. 

Cost is $60. Adults 18+ 

Session 1: 7-10 a m.  

Session 2: 10 a.m.-1 p.m.  

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact in advance at
