This page has been established as a guide for those who have either never rowed or who have recently relocated to Canberra and wish to join a rowing program within the ACT. Learn to row programs are designed to teach those who have never rowed the basic skills involved with rowing. After completion participants may choose to take up sport further by becoming a member of an affiliated club and registering as a competitor Rowing ACT.

Participants are encouraged to contact clubs directly for information on learn to row programs and membership.
