Learn to Row this Summer!

Summer 2018 registration is now open for adult Learn To Row.

Rowing is a whole body sport that builds strength and aerobic capacity. It also provides great team experiences, opportunities for competition, and the pleasure of being on beautiful Guelph Lake. Join us to experience this exciting and growing sport!

Classes start in early June and we have a flexible variety of choices and times. You can find out more on the program page, or contact us by email if you have questions.
