Membership is available to those who know how to row. During the summer months, when we have the light, we offer four member rows a week. In winter, we offer member rows on weekend mornings. Those who know the waterway well, and have demonstrated themselves as capable rowers, are free to arrange independent rows to row outside of coached rows.
We have a range of equipment that members have access to. Ranging from racing singles, to more stable boats that can withstand a few ocean waves. As a club, we almost exclusively scull.
We are a small and growing club and, with the exception of our coaches, are a volunteer run organization. Joining False Creek means joining an active and engaged group of people who are enthusiastic about creating a welcoming, diverse, and safe community. We organize informal social events, and hold regular maintenance sessions over the summer where members get a chance to learn more about maintaining equipment, and help with regular compound maintenance.
If you are interested in joining, contact us for more information. We offer 2 free member rows to try us out if you are an experienced rower that is up to date on Rowing Canada/Rowing BC fees.
