Get started


There are great ways to get involved at DRC, whether you’re new to rowing or have experience.


Learn to Row

For new rowers, we ask that you attend a “Learn to Row” class. Learn to Rows cover the basics of rowing, safety, mechanics of the stroke, using an “erg” machine, and getting on the water.

We are still figuring out our 2019 Duwamish Learn to Row classes. Last year, they took place as weeklong classes in the month of June (learn more!).

You can also bring evidence of having taken a Learn to Row class at one of the other great clubs in our area, such as Lake Union, Greenlake, or Pocock.


Experienced Rowers

If you’ve rowed in a boat on the water before, you are welcome to stop by our club for any scheduled practice and start working into one of our boats.

You can find out more about our schedule, required forms, or email with questions.
