Give Rowing a Try – Be part of a national movement to learn to row in just 3 hours. You will have a chance to row on the land and water. There is no charge for this introduction to the sport of rowing here on Lake Guntersville.Open to age 13 and up.

We invite you to experience the joy of rowing  -  meet at the Guntersville Recreation Center for a brief instruction of the basics of rowing on one of our rowing machines.  Then, out to the lake where you will  take a seat in one of our boats to learn how to sweep row on the water.  Our coaches will guide you through every step of the way.

The minimum age for participation is 13. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent.

We recommend comfortable, but not baggy, clothes.  Bring shoes that you can slip out of at the dock and an extra pair of socks.  Sunscreen, sunglasses and water bottles are always a good idea.  We may have to adjust the details of the program according to the conditions,but this is an outdoor sport and we will conduct the day in any weather except thunderstorms.

The class size is limited!  To sign up please send an email to randy@guntersvillerowing.org with your contact information, including email and phone as well as your age.
