National Learn to Row Day is an annual event sponsored by USRowing and Concept2 that brings the sport of rowing to everyone!
Join us on June 7 for a FREE learn to row session at the beautiful WMS Boathouse (3400 N. Rockwell). You'll learn to use the ergs (rowing machines), row in the one-of-a-kind indoor rowing tank, and row in a boat on the Chicago River.
Sessions will last about 90 minutes. You'll rotate through three different rowing experiences (ergs, tanks, water) during this time, getting a full rowing experience. Must be 12 years old or older.
Online registration will close at 10pm on June 6. Day of registration will be available at the WMS Boathouse. We will be accepting walk-ups on the day of the event.
