We offer individual lessons to beginner and intermediate rowers by appointment. Each lesson lasts approximately 75 minutes.

For beginner lessons, we focus on the basic mechanics of rowing, learning how to handle equipment, and taking those first few exciting strokes on the water! Most beginner rowers require two lessons before they are ready to rent a shell and row on their own. Your instructor will help you make this decision.

Intermediate lessons are focused on more advanced rowing technique and learning how to be autonomous on and off the water.

To make an appointment, please email We are excited to introduce you to this sport and to our beautiful lake.


Rentals of recreational or racing shells, singles or doubles, are available by appointment. We have a wide variety of boats to choose from, depending on your experience level. Consider becoming a member and taking advantage of lower rental rates or to join a seasonal session!

A free annual one-day introduction to the sport of sculling at Burbank Park on Onota Lake.

Participants will be introduced to sculling on shore and then they try it out in a recreational shell. This event is free and open to the public. We welcome everybody: children and adults, experienced and brand new. We hope that everybody gets the opportunity to try this fun and challenging sport.

Participants will meet just north of Onota Lake’s public beach in Burbank Park. Rain or shine. Stay tuned for our information about our next Learn To Row session in June 2018, and check out What’s Happening.


Spring season is currently in progress with summer season on the horizon!

Coached Adult Programs

Rowers go for a spin around the lake with their coach as they work on various aspects of their technique and their stroke. Anyone who has been cleared by a coach to row alone is welcome to join and take out any available single that they like. Rowers are responsible for reserving their own boats.

We are always looking to expand our coached programs for adults, so stay tuned for more opportunities!
