Community Learn to Row

Our Program focusses on skill development and safety.  By the end of 10 sessions, new rowers should be able to safely navigate the Ottawa River in a single scull with 2 oars.  Participants will be part of a small group (max 5 in a class) and receive the guidance of highly skilled coaches.  You will receive:

  • Instruction on basic rowing skills, including how to safely launch and independently dock the boat

  • Safety instruction, including navigational patterns, when it is safe to row and what to do in an emergency

  • Tutorial on how to use the ONEC online boat booking system to book your own boat and connect with others to row safely and report damaged equipment

  • Row with us for the rest of the season!

$696 (early season) or $546 (mid season) + HST

Community Return to Rowing

Do you have previous sculling experience and are you anxious to get back on the water?  If you haven’t sculled for 2 years or more, either at ONEC or elsewhere, join ONEC with the Return to Rowing Program to participate in:

  • An assessment in a single scull,

  • An ONEC Rowing Orientation session which covers safety aspects that you will need to know

  • Plus up to 2 coached sessions during the month of June to bring your rowing skills back to a level to safely row on the Ottawa River

  • Row with us for the rest of the season!
