In appreciation of the men and women who have served our country and who love water sports, WRRA is offering a FREE opportunity for Veterans to try rowing.

Veterans Learn to Row Day*
August 27, 2017
7:30 a.m. - Noon

Sign up today!

Rowing is a true team sport that demands the unremitting dedication of body and mind, heart and soul in a way required by no other team sport.

Learn to Row is a half day instructional session which introduces new rowers to the sport of rowing on the Cuyahoga River. LTR is an opportunity for adults (18 and older) to experience the sport of rowing and determine interest in joining Cleveland’s rowing community. WRRA instructors will teach the basics of the sport of rowing, special safety considerations on the Cuyahoga, rowing terminology, and boat handling. Participants will receive instruction on basic rowing technique using a stationary rowing machine (erg), and on-the- water practice, rowing as a crew of eight.

Agenda
Registration: 7:30 am – 8:00 am
Session starts promptly at 8:00 am
