Learn-to-Row Day 2014


Berkeley High Crew is happy to be hosting our annual Spring Learn-to-Row Day on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 9:00 AM.   Participants will:

  • Learn the basics of rowing from Berkeley High coaches
  • Practice rowing on land on a rowing machine
  • Row on the water in our training barge
  • Meet current Berkeley High rowers and coxswains
  • Learn about the rowing team at Berkeley High School
  • Have Fun!

Light snacks will be provided, but we encourage everyone to bring a water bottle and hat (for sun protection) and to wear sunscreen.  Dress in layers and wear comfortable, athletic clothing – sweatpants or shorts are fine. (Avoid baggy, basketball-style shorts because they can get caught in the equipment.)

The Learn-to-Row Day is free, but please RSVP.  More information is available on our Learn-to-Row Day page. Still have questions?  Email us:

Date: Saturday, May 10, 2014
Time: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location: Jack London Aquatic Center (115 Embarcadero, Oakland)
