Sculling Instruction and Development

The sculling program provides ongoing skill development for all members, from new scullers to seasoned ones. All clinics are delivered by dedicated volunteer coaches and are free for ONEC members.



Sculling is rowing with two blades in a quad, double or single boat. New rowers are introduced to sculling through ONEC’s Learn-to-Scull (LTS) program. The program consists of one orientation session and six lessons.
