Learn to row at the Y

The Wilton Family YMCA gym opens its doors to the public on Saturday, Sept. 12, and offers an introduction to the sport of rowing from 1 to 3. Rowing 101 is an opportunity for someone who’s curious about the sport to give a try.
The afternoon will be filled with hands-on educational and athletic opportunities to gain the fundamentals of rowing. Using demos, races and basic drills, participants will learn how to coordinate movement and strokes while receiving instruction on an erg and participate in yoga and stretching specifically designed for rowing.
The Norwalk River Rowing Association will lead all activities and will be on hand to answer any questions. Participants will have an opportunity to register for Norwalk River Rowing “Learn to Row” morning sessions and a 15% discount will be applied for those who register on site at the event.
