NEXT SUMMER CAMPS WILL BE HELD IN JUNE, JULY AND AUGUST 2020!

YOUTH LEARN TO ROW SUMMER CAMPS

An introduction to the sport of rowing by the St. Louis Rowing Club for youth ages 10-17 (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. In the camp, participants will be introduced to:

Benefits of rowing  •  Building strength  •  Teamwork  •  Fitness  •  Correct rowing technique  •  Boathouse and facilities  •  Equipment used in rowing  •  Proper boat and equipment handling

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.

NEW THIS YEAR….We are offering the opportunity to add an optional athletic fitness session! In an effort to accommodate transportation for busy parents, this extended schedule option for Camps 2 and 3 provides a sampling of rowing-focused workouts (both on the rowing machine and core strengthening circuits). These workouts are similar to those performed by our athletes as part of their rowing season and will give your young athlete an even greater experience with this amazing sport! This session requires a minimum of 5 registrants to be offered.

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. The optional athletic fitness session can be added on for an additional $125 for the 10 sessions.
