What is a rowing course and how does it work?

Six times per year we start one of our 8 week rowing courses. You can register individually and we will make 4 person teams for the courses. You can also ask to be placed with one, two or three friends on the registration form.

I've never rowed before. For which rowing course can I register the best?

The Beginner course is suitable for complete beginners, with no prior rowing experience necessary.

Where can I sign up for a rowing course?

On the homepage, as well as on the page of the relevant course.

When will I receive a confirmation of my registration in a team?

After completing and submitting the form, you will receive a confirmation in the mail that the form has been sent. In the week preceding the course you will receive an email with the day and time we have been able to schedule you.

I am going on holiday during the course, but want to row. Is that possible?

With the exception of the Learn to Row course 1, existing customers can book a separate extra lesson. You then call us on that day (morning from 8:30 am and evening from 4:30 pm) so the head coach can see if there is a place available in a team with the same level of experience. The price of a loose lesson is €29.

Do lessons proceed in bad weather?

Yes! Rowing is an outdoor sport that has proceeds in all weather types. Also with rainy and windy conditions. If the weather is so bad that we cannot proceed outside, an alternative program will be organized.

Should I be able to swim?

To join any rowing activity at TopRow, you’ll need to have swimming diploma A or equivalent rowing skills.

Are there also rowing courses for juniors?

For children aged 10 to 14 years we have special youth rowing courses. You can read more about this under the heading ‘ Courses ‘. In addition we organize in the holidays ‘Splashweken’ for youth.

What is the refund policy?

When signing up for the rowing course you agree to the Terms and Conditions. Once you are scheduled for the course there is no refund of the amount possible. The withdrawal of the course is possible up to 2 weeks before the course starts. We will charge an amount of €25,- administration fees in that case.
