Barge Rowing Class
Why Try Rowing? What Can Rowing Do for You?
• Can you enjoy the beautiful Arizona fall weather? Check.
• Will you be surrounded with friends and teammates? Check.
• Will it challenge you to learn a new sport and get some exercise on the water? Check.
• Will it be FUN? CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!
Rowing will do all this, and more! Come try it in our Barge Rowing program and see for yourself.
Ability360 members and friends are invited to take part in this new program, Barge Rowing. What is “barge rowing?” you may be asking yourself? A rowing barge is a large, flat, floating platform, that seats rowers and their oars and It is used as a safe place to learn the basics of rowing. You row it like a boat, and it moves through the water like a boat, but it’s not “tippy” like a rowing boat. The best-kept secret of the barge, though, is that it’s just darn fun to row – and you will be rowing your first time on the water!
So, what are you waiting for? Register NOW and come row the barge!

• No prior rowing experience is necessary, though you should already be performing regular exercise. Rowing is physically and mentally demanding.
