This program provides an introduction to the sport of rowing by the St. Louis Rowing Club for youth ages 11-17 (girls and boys). Each camp is comprised of 10 two-hour practices spread out over two weeks and are held in June, July and August.
Instruction begins with a brief history, tour and discussion of rowing terminology, technique, and safety. After learning the basics of the rowing stroke on an indoor rowing machine, weather allowing, participants will get hands-on experience in an eight person shell. Following lessons at the dock, they will push off and head out to open water. Lessons will then be focused on proper body position and movement, building boat speed, and working together as a crew. This is a unique opportunity to try the sport and make new friends.
Once participants have completed the Learn To Row camp, they will be better prepared to try out for the youth novice competitive team (ages 13-17). Try outs are held each fall in September and spring in late February.
Each 10-practice Learn to Row camp costs just $275. In addition, $75 of the Youth LTR Summer Camp fee is applied to the fall season membership dues if the rower participates in try outs and is selected for the novice youth competitive team.
