Since 1971, we consistently and without fail provide our customers with premium individualized instructional sessions at affordable prices that include value added items.
Our Adirondack Rowing School is for individuals that are serious about learning the best sculling technique in a fraction of the time of the weekend or week long sculling camps.
Adirondack Rowing School is where you can learn the best sculling technique in the shortest amount of time while saving the most money. We are the oldest as well as the only rowing school in the nation where you can receive the best individualized rowing and sculling instruction with the most fun, courteous and skilled staff while at the same time trying all the best open water rowing shells and sliding seat family boats side by side. You also receive half your lesson fee back when you purchase a shell, new or used, from Adirondack Rowing.
We have provided thorough and comprehensive sculling lessons since 1971. As a result every year our rowing school has grown because of our high quality one on one instruction and the unique provision of comprehensive product comparison. Because of this we encourage individuals considering lessons or demonstrations to make reservations with us as early as possible. As summer gets underway in June, July and August, the rowing school is run daily and at times becomes difficult to schedule "drop-ins"; although we try to accommodate everyone it is not always possible.
Our Rowing School is located in the Adirondacks, run April through November by appointment only.

Our novice classes teach the fundamentals of rowing. This “on the water” class will cover the elements of the technical sculling stroke, boat handling, water safety, rowing terms, equipment care and plenty of time on the water. A variety of rowing boats, from Guideboats to shells, are used while learning the elements of the stroke, boat and equipment handling and boat safety. At the completion of the class, you will be able to launch, scull and maneuver your single shell with relative ease.
We invite you to compare our lesson rates to those of other sports. You could easily spend $300 on a ski lesson by the time you purchase lift tickets, rent skis, and pay for the lesson itself. We don't charge for the use of our equipment, and you're certainly free to use the lake as much as you want free-of-charge. We charge only for our instructor’s time and for our expense of renting the shoreline where we teach.
