No matter your long term goals in rowing, the journey is lots of fun. We have boats available for all size and skill levels so you can participate in a single, double, quad or various “sweep” boat combinations. For those just learning to row we have wider boats that offer greater stability and let you concentrate on your form.
Contact us today. Let the fun begin…..
Sign up for a “Learn to Row” class or participate in our summer or winter training camps. During your classes you will learn rowing terminology, the fundamentals and techniques of rowing, use of the erg as it relates to the art of rowing, the care and use of the equipment, safety rules and general operations at the club.
After completing your class, take our certification test so you can join the club and enjoy more rowing. Most rowers are able to qualify after the three Learn to Row classes. If you should need an extra hour or so on the water after the course is completed, one of our experienced coaches or members will work with you.
Join NPBRC. To be able to continue to row with us outside of a Learn to Row class or private lesson, you will need to join the club so that you and the club are both insured for your activities while on our site. Rowers aged 18 and over are referred to as “Masters”. Ages 12-18 are considered Youth Rowers. Youth are strongly encouraged to sign up for NPBRC’s high school team.
Adult members who are certified can come to row alone or with other members any day and at any time during daylight hours. We keep a Log Book on site where other members sign in and list the time of day they row and when they plan to row again so you can find others to get on the water with. Rowing when others are at the club is highly encouraged. Youth members must either be accompanied by a qualified adult club member or must join our HS team and row with scheduled practices.
If you’re ready for more instruction and/or structure, come out for our group Sessions held most Saturdays at 7am and Sundays at 8am, or contact your new teammates via our Team App to coordinate a time during the week that is convenient for you. These sessions offer a great time to meet others at the club and to row in larger boats like doubles, quads, or fours if desired.
Try various boats! Once you have improved your stroke and would like to move up in difficulty, you can start to use the narrower racing-style boats. When you are comfortable on the water and would like to advance your skills further, our coaches can introduce you to advanced techniques in a single, double, quad or sweep boat.
For even more personalized attention, we offer private lessons and semi-private (2 people) lessons at any time to speed up your learning process.
