National Learn to Row Day
National Learn to Row Day kicks off this year on Saturday, June 3, with the theme of "Opening the Boathouse Doors." Rowing clubs across the United States are encouraged to welcome and celebrate newcomers to our sport via this annual tradition of Learn to Row Day. Best of all it's FREE!
National Learn to Row Day is co-sponsored by USRowing and Concept2. The event is a community outreach day geared to educate and inspire all ages about the amazing sport of rowing. The day plays an important role in the overall growth of the sport by bringing visibility and attention to rowing within local communities. USRowing provides Learn to Row Day information and resources including a poster, graphics, social media ideas and other event planning tips for a successful, safe event.
“We’re proud to be long-time sponsors of National Learn to Row Day and hope that this first time rowing experience can translate to a lifelong love of the sport. We hope that everyone has a great experience on the water enjoying something new,” says Concept2's Judy Geer.
Host locations will be entered in a prize drawing to win either a set of four Concept2 sweep oars or four pairs of Concept2 Bantam sculls. Bantam sculls are well-suited for a variety of users including youth, recreational, beginners, and masters athletes.
