Designed to help organizations promote their programs and to raise awareness for the sport of rowing.
What to Expect
During the time provided, participants will learn about the different types of rowing equipment and basic rowing vocabulary (yes, rowers have their own language!). Participants will begin by learning the basics of the rowing stroke on an ergometer, or erg.
After progressing to the on-the-water portion of the learn to row day, participants receive a short period of instruction in a rowing shell.
What to Wear & Bring
There are many moving parts to rowing equipment in which fabric can get caught. Wearing a form-fitting, spandex-style unisuit or close-fitting shorts and a tech shirt is recommended. Sunscreen and water are a must! Nothing can ruin an LTR class more than being sunburned and dehydrated. Other necessary items include a hat or visor, sunglasses, sneakers & socks, and a towel.
What happens after LTR?
Representatives from PWCA as well as Member organizations will be on-site to provide specifics on each of the programs, requirements, important dates, and next steps that are specific to them.
