Learn To Row
The 15th-annual National Learn to Row Day sponsored by USRowing and Concept2 was held on Saturday, June 4, 2016, in rowing clubs and health clubs throughout the United States. Competitive and recreational rowers range in age from 12 to over 90, so it is never too early or too late to take up the sport.
This year more than 125 organizations registered to host their own National Learn To Row Day programs. See who hosted a program near you!

Co-Sponsored by Concept2
Concept2 was founded by Dick and Peter Dreissigacker in 1976. Fresh from Olympic training, the two brothers designed and manufactured carbon fiber racing oars, then went on to create the world’s first air-resistance indoor rower. The SkiErg, launched in 2009, builds upon Concept2’s years of experience in designing and manufacturing high-performance training equipment. For more information about Concept2, visit concept2.com.
