Come & Try Rowing

Discover the sport of rowing

Rowing is a great way to get outside, enjoy beautiful Guelph Lake, meet new people and learn a new skill. You will learn the fundamentals on the rowing machines at the boathouse, and then you will practice rowing with an oar in the water. All participants will get into eight man racing shells where you will receive on the water coaching from club coaches and volunteers. 

No experience necessary. Open to adults 18 years or older. Participants should bring fitted athletic clothing and socks, water bottle for hydration, hat and sunscreen.

The Guelph Rowing Club is located on Guelph Lake, part of the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA). 

NOTE: Try-Rowing participants will not have to pay GRCA entry fees. Once through the main gate, keep right, go through Gate 1, and keeping on the main road and keeping to the right will take you directly to the Guelph Rowing Club boathouse. The park staff at the gate can also direct you to the Guelph Rowing Club.

Registration is required to ensure all participants are covered by Rowing Canada's insurance.
