Back by popular demand, we will be able to offer one more sculling class this summer! The level of instruction is geared towards those with little or no sculling experience, but with a decent understanding of sweep rowing. As such, this class is open to rowers that have completed a Learn to Row or Learn to Scull class. 

There are only four slots available; participants will receive individualized training from the coach.

This program meets three times:  Tuesday and Thursday from 6 pm to 8 pm, and Saturday morning from 10 am to 12 noon, at the Grand Rapids boathouse. Member cost is $60, nonmember cost is $75.

What to bring: Rowing is a good workout. Wear workout clothes. Wear tight-fitting shorts (spandex recommended), as loose-fitting clothes will get caught in the rowing shell's mechanisms. Wear socks that you are not afraid to get dirty - really dirty - and shoes that you can easily slip off.

Bring some bug spray and sunglasses, and a full water bottle to every practice.

Rowing is a water sport. We could row in the rain, so a towel and change of clothes in your car would also be a good idea.

Attendance is limited to 4 participants so sign up now!

IMPORTANT: All participants will need to read, print, and bring this (signed) waiver to the first session! If you have already taken a class from the GRRA or are a club member, you have already done this and another waiver is not needed. We must have a signed waiver from you in order to place you in a boat! (Waiver requires Adobe Acrobat Reader. Download the free Reader software here.)
