rowing is where each rower in the boat uses 1 oar and has both hands on the oar. New rowers learn to row in a stable 8-person shell. Experienced rowers can progress to 2- or 4-person shells over time. Our beginner sweep rowing program is designed for those who are new to the sport.
is where each rower has two oars. New scullers start out in a one-person shell known as a “single.” Experienced scullers can progress to 2- or 4-person shells. We require those who are new to rowing start by taking our Learn to Row class and participate in the Novice program before learning to scull.
For those with prior rowing experience
(e.g., high school, collegiate or club), we welcome new members to visit one of our coached sweep programs and/or become a part of our sculling community.
If you do have sculling experience, please note that in form submission. We are offering a limited number of memberships to those who are experience scullers.
Adult or “masters” programs at LGRC are geared for adults age 18 and up, of all fitness levels. We have programs for beginning rowers through experienced rowers.

We do not have coaches on the water for our adult rowing hours, so those who scull need to be confident in their abilities and in the event that a single flips rowers must be experienced in being able to re-enter the boat from the water.
