National Learn to Row (LTR) Day – FREE

  • 04 Jun 2022
  • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • GRRC Boathouse, 291 North Park St NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49544

Join us to celebrate National Learn to Row Day! 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 and the Grand River! 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 (but no baggy pants or shorts) and bring/wear socks.

No need to sign up. All ages are welcome; however, in order to use the equipment and enjoy the on-water experience, children must be entering 8th grade in the fall.

Please take a moment to read our general waiver, sign it and bring it with you to the event. Your experience will be around 45-60 minutes in total.

We look forward to seeing you!
