WBC welcomes all new, novice rowers. Our adult learn-to-row programs are tailored to anyone who has always wanted to give rowing a try. All novice rowers interested in becoming WBC members must participate in one of WBC’s “Learn-To-Row” programs.

The Learn-to Row programs are conducted over 10 sessions (a period of 3+ weeks) and provide participants with an introduction to the sport of rowing. It starts with a quick introduction to rowing mechanics on land using the rowing machine (erg) and then quickly transition to the river where the real fun begins. We pride ourselves in creating a fun, informative environment that is truly ideal for ALL levels of athletes. Each session includes opportunities for sweep rowing (each rower holds one oar) and sculling (each rower holds two oars). It is our goal that by the end of the program you gain enough exposure to the sport to know whether you would like to continue. Many learn-to-row “graduates” become year-round Whitemarsh Boat Club members and make new friends in the process. Learning to row can be addictive!
