Private Lessons

We want to teach you to row! If you are new to rowing or just want to improve your technique, please request a lesson and if a coach is available, they will reach out to you directly.

Waiver Forms

Individuals not currently registered in a CRI program and who have not paid the Facilities Fee, must sign a CRI General Waiver prior to going on the water.


Lessons must be pre-paid online before coming to the boathouse. Once your session has been confirmed, you will receive an email with payment instructions.

Swim Test

Rowers planning to schedule repeated private lessons (4 or more) should register for the Facilities Fee and submit a swim test for our files.  


Scheduling is subject to coach availability. To request a private lesson please fill out and submit a CRI Private Lesson Request Form. If a coach is available during your requested time, they will contact you directly.
