Sweep Rowing at BIACLearn to Row

In sweep rowing, each rower uses one oar. Sweep rowers typically row in boats with 4 or 8 rowers and often have a coxswain steering the boat. Sweep is ideal for someone who wants the camaraderie of a team sport and aims to go fast in big boats!

Learn to Scull

In sculling, each rower has two oars, which allows them to row in a boat by themselves (a single) or in a boat with 2 or 4 people. Sculling is ideal for people who want to learn rowing technique and then be able to train on their own schedule.
