Club to offer first timers chance to learn to row

LOWER Clarence Rowing Club at Maclean (near Ferry Park) will be conducting a Learn To Row course commencing on October 3.

The course will be conducted across eight Saturday mornings. Each session will be approximately 1.5 hours and begin at 8am.

The objective is to teach basic rowing skills and boat handling techniques and develop potential rowers from beginner stage to have sufficient rowing skills to join a Lower Clarence rowing squad.

Rowing squad training is conducted under the supervision of qualified coaches during the week. Squad members are eligible to compete in regattas when they reach an acceptable standard of rowing proficiency.

Course numbers will be limited to six, the cost of the program is $50, $15 of which covers the cost of a recreational rowing membership for Rowing NSW.

If the rower then proceeds to join Lower Clarence as a member the $50 will be discounted from the LRRC membership fee.

Please phone David Hailes on 6646 3769 or Clare Millist on 0405 634 316 after September 4 to register your interest for the Learn To Row program.
