River's Edge Learn to Row Day 2017

Join student athletes from the Tufts University Rowing Team for the 3rd annual River's Edge Learn to Row Day! On Saturday, September 23rd, members of the Tufts varsity team will be leading 2-hour sessions at the Shoemaker Boathouse to enable members of the community to learn about this graceful and challenging sport. Rowing is an ancient sport that offers both a wonderful and peaceful way to enjoy the river, as well as a low-impact full-body workout.
No experience required - just bring a willing spirit and curiosity to learn! Sessions are free of charge, children 12 and over are welcome to participate. Sessions will run at 8:00 am, 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 2:00 pm. Sessions will not be physically demanding-- -the emphasis is on fun and learning about the sport - but dress for athletic activity: comfortable, close-fitting clothes are ideal. No baggy shorts, please!
