Learn to Row (LTR)

Skill Development, Safety and Fun are the three principles underlying the Learn to Row (LTR) program at the LaSalle Rowing Club. If you’ve been thinking about learning how to row, this is the year to make it happen! Join the LTR program and experience the fun and friendships for which rowing is known. Our enthusiastic coaches will show you the way as a beginner, or add to your skills as a returning rower. No previous rowing experience is necessary to enroll in the class. Swimming ability is strongly recommended. Individuals who are not competent swimmers are responsible to wear a PFD (Personal Floatation Device) when on the water.
