Private Lessons

Private lessons offer individually scheduled coaching sessions – opportunities to hone your skills, improve our technique, increase your confidence or train for competition under the guidance of an expert NRR coach.

Private lessons are not meant as a substitute for adult beginner lessons and are offered individually (1 coach to 1 rower).

Experienced adults with a current NRR membership and adults who have completed Adult Beginner Lessons and joined with a Beginner Continuation membership can take lessons. (Please note: Private lessons are not a substitute for NRR’s 4-session Adult Beginner Lessons -they are an excellent supplement.)

Days and times for coaching sessions are subject to approval by NRR coaches and will depend on the demand for equipment.

If you would like to schedule lessons please email to agree upon a plan, after which you can register at RegattaCentral to reserve the coaching sessions.
