The UWA Boatclub runs several Community Learn to Row courses every year for you to come along and try out our great sport.

This is an introductory course good for those who have never rowed or not rowed for many years and want to remember those old skills.

While at the beginner level aerobic fitness is not required you do need to be able to lift a boat overhead (as part of a crew) and your body needs to be flexible enough to compress up during the stroke.  It’s a good idea to do some stretching before and after every session.

We reserve the right to assess and refuse applicants for the sake of their own safety and welfare, and that of others.

Because each boat requires 8 rowers we need a minimum of 8 registrations to proceed with any L2R programme. If a L2R course is cancelled due to insufficient registrations your payment will be refunded. When there are more than 8 registrations, we then need closer to 16 people to fill a second boat. If we don’t reach 16, those who registered earliest will secure their place and the later registrations may need to be cancelled and refunded. So if you want to do it, get on and register, the earlier the better!
