FCRA MASTERS PROGRAM
Always wanted to give it a try? What's stopping you?
The learn to row class is encouraged if you're new to rowing and wish to move on to private coaching and/or membership.
This three day class will acquaint you with the sport of rowing, stroke, safety and terminology.
The learn to row is one of our club's biggest fundraisers and keeps us up and running to support our mission to promote rowing to the Northern Colorado community and teach juniors rowing and skills that translates to a positive life.

The water at Horsetooth is extremely cold in spring and early summer. All rowing activity is at the rower’s risk. If a situation doesn’t feel right, either do not row or if you are rowing, get off the water ASAP. Safety is everyone’s responsibility.
