Welcome to Tempe Town Lake Rowing: 
Tempe Town Lake Rowing is proud to offer rowing classes for both beginners and experienced rowers. Our Learn to Row class is perfect for those looking to try this fantastic sport. Novice Open Row is designed to be repeated until the participant is ready for the full Open Row experience. Open Rowing is designed for more experienced rowers and those looking to challenge themselves on the race course.

Rowing is divided into "sweep" and "sculling" disciplines. Sweep rowers each use a single oar, while sculling rowers use two smaller oars. Boats capable of seating 2, 4, and 8 individuals are used for sweep racing. When sculling rowers use single, double and four person shells (quads or 4x). 

The Tempe Town Lake Rowing Program provides instruction in both disciplines each season. Every session we have numerous courses to choose from. Sign up and be a part of the new tradition of rowing in the desert.
