The best things begin with, "I've always wanted to..."

Adult Learn to Row
MRC welcomes adults who would like to get a sense of the beauty and camaraderie that can be found rowing in the heart of the Twin Cities. This class offers 6 hours of instruction on land and on the water including basics of the rowing stroke and how to handle the rowing equipment. Upon completion of Learn To Row, participants may become MRC members and continue rowing with our Adult Novice Team.

MRC strives to offer programs that meet or exceed public health and social distancing guidelines. We strongly recommend participants be fully vaccinated, however at this time, it is not required. Please note MRC reserves the right to update club COVID policies and procedures at any time in response to changing conditions. Please view the MRC Safety page for MRC COVID-19 Procedures.  
  
Class Outline
Friday: This class will be entirely on land with an orientation and tour of our award-winning boathouse, stroke work on the erg, and an introduction to equipment and equipment handling. Be prepared for light to moderate exercise.

Saturday and Sunday: Get ready to row! You'll warm up and review stroke basics before getting out on the water. The class will utilize our safe and stable 10-person training barge and if conditions permit, you may have the opportunity to row an 8+ (8 oar rowing shell plus coxswain) with MRC volunteers. Please dress according to weather for light to moderate exercise, e.g. layers, hat, sunscreen, etc.
