Learn To Row Day

  • 04 Aug 2018
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • GRRA Boathouse 291 North Park NE Grand Rapids, MI

It has been an excellent summer and August is a perfect time to challenge yourself to something new and get out in nature. Come help us celebrate the summer rowing season here in West Michigan. Saturday, August 4, is a FREE Learn to Row day for any community member interested in the sport of rowing. Whether you are looking to sign up for a class or just want to check it off your bucket list, we'd love to have you join us on the Grand River. No prior experienced required. 

Your visit will start with a quick tour of our boathouse and review of the safety rules. We'll get you acquainted with the boats and put you on an indoor rower to show you proper technique. Then, it's down to the dock! Our boats will be ready with trained coxswains and coaches to make your first experience in a sweep boat the best it can be. You'll be seated near experienced rowers who are encouraging, supportive and are ready to help. Take time out of your Saturday schedule to learn a new skill, meet some wonderful people and have a great time on the water. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and bring/wear socks. 

This is our last Learn To Row Day of 2018. Grab a friend or family member and join us on the river!
