Lookout Rowing Club - Chattanooga, TN

Learn To Row


Class Structure

LRC teaches sculling and sweep rowing technique.

Sculling classes start first with learning the basics of the rowing motion on an indoor rowing machine ( "Erg").  After learning the basic motion students are typically placed in a boat ( "shell") with an experienced rower.  Students then advance to rowing in a tethered single shell.  By the second week many students are rowing on their own within the vicinity of the boathouse.

During the training students will be instructed on how to re-enter a single sculling boat in the event it capsizes.

Sweep rowing classes begin with rowers in team boats, learning the importance of working together. Our schedule this summer will give opportunities for both styles of rowing:
