What to Bring

Introduction-to-Rowing Course


This six-lesson course will introduce you to both the physical and psychological benefits of single scull and team-based rowing.  No previous rowing experience is necessary. Students will learn rowing terminology, fundamentals, and technique – all in a fun group environment that fosters fitness and camaraderie. Students will also learn how to properly use indoor machines. For those who prefer one-on-one learning, we also offer three individual lessons as an alternative to the group course. 

All Sports Membership

$499 or $699

A TRC All-Sport Membership is our most popular membership option. Memberships are offered for six months ($499) and for one year ($699). These memberships include UNLIMITED rowing, kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddling (SUPs).  It also includes our popular Introduction-to-Rowing Course.  Once you complete the Introduction-to-Rowing Course, your membership also includes free coaching when you join one of our team crews - New Crew, Intermediate Crew, and Advanced Competitive Crews.

Crew Programs

No Additional Cost

Once you complete your Introduction-to-Rowing Course, we invite you to join our New Crew, which will introduce you to team-boat sweep rowing. Upon completion of New Crew, you may join our Intermediate Crew or our nationally recognized Advanced Competitive Crew. Our TRC Competitive Crews participate and win at Austin, regional, and national regattas. Members receive unlimited crew coaching at no extra cost! To see practice times for New Crew, Intermediate Crew, and Competitive Crew, see our FAQs.

This membership includes a punch card for fifteen rows in single-person rowing sculls. It DOES NOT include the Introduction-to-Rowing Course, team-boat rowing, or paddling (kayaks, canoes or paddle boards SUPs).
