National Learn to Row Day

 Saturday, May 4th, 2024

Have you ever driven over Lady Bird Lake and seen rowers out on the water and wondered “How can I join them?”  Here’s your chance to find out – for free!

Austin Rowing Club will be celebrating National Learn to Row Day on Saturday, May 4th, 2024. Come out and join us for a free day of fun!

We will start with an overview of boats, oars, and basic commands used to help you row. From there, our coaches and rowers will be on hand to teach you the basics of the rowing stroke out on the water in a training barge. You will get to experience what it is like rowing as part of a crew on the water on Lady Bird Lake in Austin.  Lastly, we will finish with a tour of the boathouse, a fun erg challenge, and information on our membership, classes, and summer camps.

Sessions will be offered at 8 AM, 9 AM, 10 AM, and 11 AM.
