Join us on the water
The Halifax Rowing Club is located at the Lower Level of the St. Mary’s Boat House on the beautiful Northwest Arm. We have programs designed for the beginner, intermediate and advanced rowers who are interested in fun, fitness, recreation and/or competition.
Halifax Rowing Club offers Learn-to-Row classes, and programs for those who want to row either for recreation and fitness or for fun and competition!
All of our programs are led by qualified coaches.
Rowing is a fun, low impact activity that can be enjoyed by almost everyone! Rowing is for life, for people from the age of 13 to the age 93 (and beyond). It provides excellent health and wellness benefits – it is a whole body fitness activity, helps to improve strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness and it is also a wonderful stress reliever!
There really is nothing like being out in a boat, on the water, on a beautiful summer day!
If you’ve been thinking about learning how to row this year, we can help make it happen! We offer adult and junior learn-to-row classes. Come experience the fun and friendships for which rowing is known. Our coaches will teach you everything you need to know about boat handling, rowing commands, basic rowing technique, and boat safety!
No experience is required. It’s a perfect introduction to the sport.
We offer a competitive program for adult rowers who like to train and compete, a recreation program for adult rowers who like to row for fitness, and a development program for adult rowers who have recently completed a learn-to-row class.
We offer a competitive program for junior rowers who like to train and compete, a recreation program for junior rowers who like to row for fitness, and a development program for junior rowers who have recently completed a learn-to-row class.
