National Learn to Row Day

Saturday, June 4th, 2022

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!

This is a USRowing sponsored event that offers anyone the opportunity to learn about and try rowing for the first time.  Austin Rowing Club is offering a 45 minute to 1 hour course to cover an introduction to rowing, as well as a few basics of the sport. 

Start with a tour of our boathouse including information on 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. First on an indoor rower and then 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.

Sessions will start at 8:30 AM and then every 30 minutes until 10:30 AM.

Sign up in advance below, email us at or just come on down!  We can’t wait to see you!
