The SLRC Competitive Youth Program is made up of boys and girls from the Greater St. Louis area schools. The goals of the SLRC Youth Program are to:

  • Provide a competitive, fun, and safe rowing opportunity for St. Louis area students ages 13-18

  • Foster a life-long interest in rowing in the students who participate.

  • Participate and place in high-caliber regional and national rowing events, such as the Midwest Junior Championships and Youth Nationals.

Rowing is a year-round sport consisting of fall, winter, spring, and summer seasons. Year-round participation is encouraged for serious athletes, although some of our rowers pursue other sports during one rowing season. Generally, students start rowing when school begins in September; however, kids can start in the winter and early spring as well.  Summer youth learn-to-row camps are offered for students wishing to start early.
