The rowing club isn’t exclusively for students – despite our name.
Every year we host an information meeting in early Spring, where curious newcomers (“rabbits”) and migrates (rowers who have previously achieved the right to row in other rowing clubs and bring their certificate) can sign up for the spring instruction, which starts at the beginning of April.
Normally this event is held in March. The specific date for 2020 will be posted on this webpage around February. The location for the event is: Fiskerivej 7, 8000 Aarhus C. You can give us your email address here if you want a “heads up” when we have the specific date.
Interested parties, who’ve attended the information meeting are first in line to get rowing instruction. Thereafter those who haven’t attended the information meeting will be offered instruction to the extend the rowing club’s capacity permits.
Instruction – start up
The instruction course is provided by unpaid members who’ve received special training enabling them to teach others how to row. In 2019 we held two instruction/introduction days which were mandatory for new rowers.
The dates for the new season will be published here in early Spring 2020. But expect it to be in April sometime.
You will need to attend on one of these days. We start at 9 o´clock in the morning, so that we have lots of time to do the instruction. Expect this to take all day. You´ll get a chance to meet the other “rabbits”, and get out in one (or more) of our rowing boats – so we´re sure that time will fly by quickly 🙂
Unfortunately we don´t have unlimited space on these introduction days, so you need to send Jacob (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email to let him know that you are attending.
After you have attended one of the introduction days, you are ready to come to our scheduled “instructions”. During Spring and early Summer we have fixed time slots for the instruction where you simply show up at Fiskerivej 7 at a set time.
The instruction days are:
Tuesday at 5 pm (17.00)
Thursday at 6 pm (18.00)
Sunday at 10 am (10.00)
One instruction usually takes between 1,5 and up to 3 hours.
As a rabbit you’ll need to receive instruction 7 to 10 times before you can get your certificate. Apart from that you have to do a swim test of 300 meters and be able to put on a life jacket (at the indoor swimming pool). Hereafter you can row as much as you want, as long as you have a trained coxswain in the boat. Once you’ve been trained to be a K1-coxswain yourself, you can go rowing with all your new rowing mates from ASR.
We recommend that you (in the beginning at least) set time aside twice a week to go rowing, so that you don´t forget too much between instructions.
We hope that you’ll be happy rowing in ASR! Our advice is: Be active and happy, join one of the committees, come to the parties, plan trips and parties, and enjoy all your new friendships. All the good you bring to ASR, you get back ten-fold! It’s a guarantee!
The price for being a member in the 2019 season is as follows:

If you’re a new member you’re entitled to two trial turns in the rowing boats with your instructor. When you reach your third trip you have to show a receipt for the payment of your membership fee to your instructor. All new members have to pay a fee of 50 kroner for a key, that’ll give you free access to the club house. The money is to be transferred to ASR´s bank account: Registration number 2211 and account number 0722 288 319. Remember to type in your membership number and as much of your name as possible (otherwise we don´t know who sent the money)
If you have rowed for one year or more you will receive an email with a link to pay via MobilePay. This means that you should not tranfer money to our bank account anymore. If you don´t have MobilePay, we´ll find another way for you to pay your membership fee. Please make sure that we have your updated email address, so that we can send the link to the right address. Any questions regarding payment should be directed at kassereren (Martin).
(If you are on exchange at Aarhus University for just one semester, and you have previously rowed in another rowing club, you only pay half the membership fee. If you start after September the 1st, and you have rowed before, you also only pay half the membership fee)
Should you have any further questions regarding the instruction course, please send an email to Jacob (email@example.com)
We look forward to rowing with you!
