In sweep rowing each rower holds one oar. Sweep classes are taught in an eight-person or four-person boat that are steered by people called coxswains. In this program, rowers will learn boat-handling skills, water safety, and will be introduced to the basics of rowing technique in a small group. There is no pre-requisite for this program, but you must be able to swim. Two times are offered per session, early morning or late morning.
