First step to becoming a rower is learning how to row! Luckily the Renton Rowing Center offers LTR 1, the introductory Learn to Row class twice a month and LTR 2 once a month. No experience is necessary, the classes will teach the fundamentals of rowing including the rowing stroke, water safety, equipment orientation and basic land training. Renton Rowing Center coaches will provide encouragement and advice as to which classes to take beyond our beginning series! Get on the water at Renton, where you gain more than just learning how to move a boat with a stick! Exercise on the water! Become part of a community! Access to Lake Washington! You get to be in a boat!
