Try-it Day – Sunday, April 28 and Sunday, June 2, 2019
Interested in rowing but want to learn more?
The Argonaut Rowing Club will be hosting two FREE Try-It Days this year where you’ll get a chance to get into a rowing shell.
Sunday, April 28, 2019 and Sunday, June 2, 2019
11:30am – 2:30pm
Registration is recommended for anyone attending the Try-It Day. We will try to accommodate everyone that arrives; however, we do have limited spots so please register to ensure that you will receive a spot and get this great opportunity to try rowing!
On Sunday April 28, come to out our first free Try It Day where you can get into a rowing boat – you will learn the basic body movements, get to practice on the water, and (most importantly) have fun!
There will be boats going out on the water for 30 minutes at a time from 11:30am to 2:30pm.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Who can attend?
Anyone 18 or older is welcome. If you are under 18, please come with a parent or guardian.
What should I wear?
Please wear non-loose clothing that you can easily move in – baggy clothing can obstruct your movements while in a boat. Depending on the weather forecast, bring layers to ensure you are comfortable. Also, bring socks to wear while rowing as you will be using shoes that are fixed in the boat.
Is there parking or a bike rack?
Free parking is available on-site for those who are driving a car. We also have bike racks on-site so you can lock up your bike while at the club.
How is the session structured?
You will learn the basic body movements on an indoor rowing machine, get into a rowing shell on the water, and row the boat in a loop and back to the docks.
