Introduction to Rowing

Corio Bay RC is well known for its successful learn to row courses. We have introduced hundreds of people to the wonderful sport of rowing and are pleased to see many of our Learn to Row participants improve their rowing to compete at the highest levels of competition. Others are happy to enjoy recreational rowing for general fitness and social enjoyment over many, many years.

Learn to Row Program
Cost: $100 for 4 introductory rowing sessions. (If you wish to continue rowing and join the club, $50 will be deducted from your first year’s membership fee).
We hold a few courses a year over four consecutive Sundays where you will learn the different styles of rowing (sweep and sculling), different boat types and on-water safety. We aim to build confidence and introduce the skills necessary to kick-start your rowing future.

Youth Learn to Row Program
No prior rowing experience is necessary, we do recommend attending our Learn to Row program however other times can be arranged with our youth coach. These programs are a fantastic introduction and allow teens to ‘trial’ the sport before committing to membership of the Club and Youth Squad.
