Coaching

Rocky Mountain Rowing Club offers instruction for never-ever rowers all the way to advanced competitive athletes. If you are brand new to the sport of rowing, you can sign up for our Learn To Row program, held every spring. More information on that is available here. This is an extremely popular program, so the wait list can be over a year long, but when the list becomes open to the public, each April, you can sign up by clicking here for access the RegattaCentral login page.

If you already have some rowing experience, members can join one of four levels of coached group programs. Programs meet at least once a week and are open to RMRC members, for an additional program fee. Sessions typically start in May and last throughout the summer, typically wrapping up in September.
