Competitive Youth Rowing

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.
