Youth Learn to Row is for children aged 12 to 17. This program is open to both novices and those who already have rowing experience. Participants will have the opportunity to row in a variety of racing shells, including one, two, four, and eight person shells. These opportunities provide great team-building exercises while providing physical activity in a fun, relaxed and safe environment. Please note that the children should be very comfortable around water to participate; a swim test is required of all participants under age 17.
In 2021, Youth Learn to Row practices will be held from 5:00 to 6:30 pm Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the SJRC boathouse, beginning June 29 and ending September 2. There will be a day off July 1, and if the St. John’s Regatta is held in August there will be a day off for that event. Should weather conditions not permit on-water activities on any given day, dryland skills, boat basics, fun activities or fitness training will still take place at the SJRC boathouse or the erg room.
