Unlike most other sports, rowing can be learned at any age and fitness level! Taking an introductory class with Row New York is a great way to get fit, have fun, and enjoy the beauty of the river against the backdrop of the city. It’s a truly unique experience! Learn to Row classes take place in the spring, summer, and fall at the Peter Jay Sharp Boathouse on the Harlem River in Northern Manhattan.

Learn-to-Row 1: Intensive Learn-to-Row session, $130. All classes take place on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

This is a one-day program.

— Learn basics of sweep rowing.
— Develop working knowledge of the sport including vocabulary and equipment.
— Learn proper rowing technique on land and on the water.
— Advance to water on a stable rowing barge to develop on-water technique.

This session prepares participants for our Level 2 course, in which advanced rowing skills are acquired on the water. Questions about Learn-to-Row? Visit Row New York's Q&A page.
