Learn-To-Row Information

Anyone interested in joining the Milwaukee Rowing Club Juniors Program must complete a one-week Learn-to-Row class.  Learn to Row classes run weekly throughout the summer.  Once you complete Learn to Row, you are able to join the program and participate in everyday practices and events.

Coxswains

To those interested in becoming a coxswain (the athlete who steers the boat, gives direction, and executes practice plans) must take a Learn-to-Row class. Once you have the basics of rowing down, then you will receive coxswain specific coaching.


High School Learn-to-Row

This program is for students entering grades 9-12. Each athlete will gain a well-rounded understanding of the rowing stroke, the equipment, the terminology, and safety in and around the boathouse. Our experienced coaching staff leads all sessions.

We offer three one-week sessions for beginners, each running Monday through Friday, from 10:30am-1:30pm.

After the completion of Learn to Row, all athletes will have the opportunity to "try" out the team for the remainder of the summer season.  During this time, the athletes will participate in regular practices for no additional cost.  This tryout period must be completed before September 5th.
