Programs (QRC)

rowing tank Quinte Rowing Club (QRC) is volunteer-run by its devoted Board and Club members.

The Club's rowing programs are operated out of its boathouse and training facilities located on the Waterfront Trail at 35 Keegan Parkway in Belleville.

Plan to stay fit this year by participating in one of the best all year-round fitness activities – rowing!

How Long Does It Take To Learn How To Row?

Rowing requires a combination of coordination, dexterity, balance, flexibility and understanding of the stroke mechanics. Some people pick up the basics in one or two sessions, others may need nine sessions or more. However, you will see a noticeable improvement after every practice. To improve to a competitive level requires a combination of aerobic capacity, strength, endurance and power.

At the learn-to-row stage, we request that all participants be patient, since it is a team sport and there will be a range of abilities and skill levels in every boat. Participants may be asked to take a turn at “coxing” occasionally. Sitting in the coxswain’s seat provides a great view of the crew timing and hand levels.

Since the training is in 4’s and 8’s, at some training sessions, we may have up to three extra people. In these cases, we usually take the extra people in the coach boats (another great opportunity to observe and learn) and then do a crew change on the water.
