WRR masters welcome all adult athletes.  Our sculling program and the opportunity to row team boats will satisfy

experienced rowers who have loved the sport for decades.  Learn-to-Row and Development classes will help novices fall in love with the sport for the first time (it's never too late to learn to row!)  The social as well as conditioning aspects of rowing are strongly emphasized in this program.  









Learn to Row Learn!  This class is designed to introduce those who are completely new to the sport to the essentials of sculling, including water safety, stroke mechanics, and blade work. This class will be taught by Jessi Hooper (former varsity rower and SMU coach) and Luis Prado (former Mexican National Team Member and international competitor). This 2-day class will be offered the weekend of June 13 & 14, 7-9 AM and again on July 11-12, 7-9 AM.  Cost: $75 each weekend
