Learn To Row
Learn to Row Program Fall 2013
Interested in learning to row? Yes you are!
This Olympics Canada won silver medals in both the men’s and women’s 8+. Most of the rowers in those boats didn’t start rowing until they got to University. So what’s stopping you?
Whether you’re looking for a new sport or just a fun time, sign up for the Learn-To-Row program today!

SFU Rowing is offering Learn-To-Row sessions in September, 2013 for SFU students, staff, and alumni.
Aside from being just a fun learning experience, our Learn-To-Row also program prepares you to try out for our competitive Novice Team, which competes against other university Novice crews at regattas around the Lower Mainland, and in Victoria, BC.
You will learn to sweep in an 8+ (eight person boat plus coxswain) as well as in a 4+ (four person boat plus a coxswain).
For more information or to register for Learn-To-Row, drop by Week of Welcome (WoW) in Convo Mall September 5th-8th for fun and games hosted by SFU Rowing, as well as our Clubs Days table at SFU Burnaby, September 10th-13th.
But what do I wear/bring for rowing?
1.) Slim fitting clothes with no pockets. No hoodies, no baggy shorts. Spandex is good.
2.) Socks! The boat has shoes in it for each person.
3.) Sandals or dock shoes (crocs) for getting in and out of the boat on the dock. We leave our shoes on the dock while going out to row on the lake, so don’t wear your prettiest Pradas!
4.) Bring a change of clothes and socks – new rowers tend to splash!
5.) The boathouse at Burnaby Lake has separate changing rooms for men and women, but there are no lockers, so leave your valuables at home.
6.) Water and a snack.
7.) Your Learn-to-Row fee and waiver form to the first class.
