EXPLORE – Learn to Row Course
The course is for adult (16+) beginners, and no experience of rowing is necessary. On the course qualified coaches and a team of helpers will teach you the basics of rowing, sculling, coxing and indoor rowing. Exit routes allow you to make the transition into the club, by joining either the recreational rowing group or the development squad. Over the last 2 years the Learn to Row programme has enabled DARC to become the fastest growing rowing club in the country.
We are now pleased to announce 12 new, 12 session courses for 2014. The first of which will commence from 10th January to 28th March on Friday mornings from 10.30-12.30
The cost of the course is £85 and this includes a British Rowing Handbook and course t-shirt. Application forms and course information can be found here:
There are also a limited number of subsidised places available on each course, for those that meet certain health/activity related criteria. If you receive a subsidised place the course cost will be £25. For more information on County Durham Sport’s Move into Sport programme, click here
