Learn to Row on the Schuylkill River!

May 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

| Free

Always wanted to try rowing but never knew how? Well now’s your chance! Join us for a special Love Your Park Week Learn to Row clinic with Brannon Johnson of BLJ Community Rowing! Brannon is a Philadelphia native who became a world-class rower after getting her start in the Fairmount Park Community Rowing Program. Through BLJ Community Rowing, Brannon and her team have taught over 1,000 people how to row in the last ten years.

The Learn to Row program is extensive, inclusive, and effective. Beginners will learn all aspects of sculling, including a breakdown of the stroke, how to get in and out of the boat, the rules of the river, and the many technical aspects of the sport in an easy-to-understand way.

Meet at the BLJ Community Rowing “boathouse without walls” on Kelly Drive, just north of Boathouse Row, in beautiful East Fairmount Park.

Free, but space is limited so registration is required.
