Learn-to-Row Day is June 3, kicking off a series of ReadyRowUSA episodes on this topic. Catch the replay to find out how you can get your oars wet andlearn more about this healthy, age-friendly sport!

You may be wondering, if you’re middle-aged or beyond and never rowed before, can you still take up the sport? Many of us row with folks in their 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s who started rowing relatively late in life. If you’ve got a few “creaky parts,” many clubs have adaptive classes and equipment, and the sport has a culture of rowers helping rowers.

Boston-area Coach Brian DiDominici talked with host Diane Bevan, who learned to row “at a certain age” at Community Rowing, Boston. Get your questions answered, just tune in to our YouTube, Facebook, or LinkedIn replay events and type your questions in the discussion sections, and we’ll have our experts answer them.

Surprise guest Dani Hansen, Hydrow athlete & decorated Paralympian, joins near the end for our wrap-up chat!
