The SLRC Competitive Youth Rowing Program is made up of boys and girls from the Greater St. Louis area. The goals of the program are to:
- Provide a competitive, fun, and safe rowing opportunity for St. Louis area youth ages 13-18.
- Foster a life-long interest in rowing with those 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, Spring and Summer seasons. Year-round participation is encouraged. Summer youth learn-to-row camps are offered for youth wishing to start as early as age 11.
