LOWER Clarence Rowing Club will hold a learn to row course starting on October 12.
The course will run over 10 Saturday mornings, with each session running from 8.30-10am.
The aim of the program is to teach basic rowing skills and boat-handling techniques, as well as develop potential rowers from the 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; and squad members are eligible to compete in regattas when they reach an acceptable standard.
Course numbers will be limited to 10, with the overall cost of the program being $50, $15 of which covers the cost of a recreational rowing membership for Rowing NSW.
If the rower then joins Lower Clarence Rowing Club as a member, the $15 will be discounted from the LCRC membership fee. The minimum age is 12.
