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

Many of the rowers pictured in the photo above came through our L2R program and some have represented the state in Masters events, other L2R graduates go on to be social rowers at the club.

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.

Our next community learn to row course starts on 27th May and runs for 5 Sundays.  We learn to row in an 8 (pictured above).

It’s a great way to reconnect with rowing if you rowed when you were younger or if you just want to have a go.  So come on down!

Registrations opening soon.
