Learn 2 Row / Development

Rowing is a fantastic way to get fit, supple and strong, and make a whole new group of friends in the process. Whether you see yourself racing in six months time, or would simply like to try something new and like the thought of paddling about on a river, learning to row at Maidstone is the perfect starting point to make the most out of the sport.

MIRC runs courses specifically designed for those who have never rowed before, and introduces all elements of the sport – from skills and manoeuvrability in a single sculling boat, to rowing as part of a crew, and aspects of fitness and land training.

We aim to run several courses throughout the year. Each course consists of two full days over a weekend, led by a British Rowing qualified coach. You will also receive a discount off your first year’s membership should you decide to join us, which we sincerely hope you do!

Courses currently suspended

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic the club is not holding any learn to row courses at the moment. It is unlikely that we will be in a position to hold any courses until spring 2021. If you would like to register an interest in joining a course next year then please contact the lead coach.
