St. Louis Rowing Club has many different options for Adult Rowing.

Learn To Row sessions are held in April, June, July and August.

Additional classes are occasionally offered. Once you have completed Learn to Row you move to the Adult Intermediates Group and continue to hone your skills, taught by club coaches.

After getting the nod from our coaches you can move to the Adult Masters Program and row as a member of the Competitive Masters or Recreational Masters crews.

For those who have completed Learn to Row, we also offer Novice Sculling instruction.  For experienced rowers, we also have coaching for Intermediate/Advanced Sculling.

If you have previous rowing experience and you are interested in joining SLRC or visiting as a guest, please contact or read about our memberships.



This program is geared for new sweep rowers and those whose technique needs more development. Training is year-round and may lead to competition in local and regional regattas. The Intermediate Program is the stepping stone from the Learn To Row program to the more advanced Competitive or Recreational Masters crews.

Intermediate rowers are evaluated about once a year, and those who are ready to advance are invited to move to either the Competitive Masters or Recreational Masters crew.
