LEARN TO ROW FOR JUNIORS
Pittsburgh Rowing Club is offering two Learn to Row sessions for Juniors this summer. Our program is designed for those between the ages 13 and 18 with little or no rowing experience who would like to learn the basics of sculling and sweep rowing. Participants will learn about safety, rowing terminology, and proper rowing technique.
Participants will start out learning the correct form on a rowing machine and then move into 8+ (8 rowers with a coxswain), and then into 4x, 2x or 1x sculling shells. Rowers are accompanied by a Coach in a launch (motorboat), who oversees the practice and advises on technique.
Learn to Row under the expertise of Coach Florin Curuea! As a rower, he has earned over 50 medals at the national and international level including: Romanian National Championships – 21 Gold Medals, 2002-2003 – Gold Medal at World Championships, 2012 Olympic Games – 12th Place Finish and 2012-2013 – Silver Medal at European Championships.
