There are several ways to learn how to row a single. One way is to take individual instruction from one of our coaches, or if you're a member of our club you can seek out one of our experienced scullers to help get you started. New for 2018 is a commitment to offer Sculling Learn To Row courses periodically throughout the year. Stay tuned to this channel for further developments as they break. Or send an email to email@example.com and we'll keep you informed.
Group instruction in sculling is also available at rowing camps sponsored by the Florida Rowing Center.
We hope to help you enjoy our sport and passion!
