Parent Learn to Row

Each year, the Bay Area Aquatic Center (BIAC) holds Learn to Row weekends for Norcal parents and other interested community members. BIAC is the home of Norcal Crew.

At this two-day program, rowers will learn sweep rowing (one oar per person) in a rowing shell. The first day, participants spend some time on land, learning the basic stroke on ergometers and getting familiar with the boats. The second day, most of the time is spent on the water. All sessions include instruction on dock safety, boat and oar handling, launching, basic rowing technique through drills and docking.
