This intensive learn-to-row session is a one-day program that takes place at the Peter Jay Sharp Boathouse on the Harlem River. With our experienced coaches, participants comfortably learn the basics of sweep rowing. They start on the ergometer and quickly gain a working knowledge of the sport, including its vocabulary and equipment. Before long, participants are enjoying rowing in a stable barge or racing shell and beginning to move with ease. This session prepares participants for our longer Level 2 course, in which mastery on the water is acquired.

Row New York is a non-profit organization that empowers young people from New York City’s under-resourced communities to build strength, gain confidence, and pursue excellence through the unique sport of rowing.
