Title (Max 100 Characters)
If you're looking for a challenging workout, a new social group and a chance to see the Spokane River like never before, this may be the activity for you! The Spokane River Rowing Association is filling spots for its Learn to Row classes this spring and summer.
The SRRA is a non-profit organization formed in the early 2000's. The idea is to bring to the masses what was once only accessible at a handful of east coast colleges. As the sports gains popularity on college campuses, clubs like the SRRA have sprung up, providing an exciting and challenging full-body workout to people of varying experience levels. The club has rowers ranging from true novices with no experience to future world champions. In fact, world champ Jamie Redman began her career with the SRRA!
Many rowers begin with the Learn to Row classes, a series of six lessons over three weeks that will teach you the very basics of this sport. Then, rowers transition to the Masters program, practicing several times a week and competing in regattas across the northwest. The program is led by Gonzaga Men's Rowing assistant coach Mark Voorhees. Boats launch from the Gonzaga University boathouse on the Spokane River, just north of Felts Field.
