Summer 2018‎ > ‎

Youth Learn to Row

Summer is hands down the best time of year to Learn To Row (LTR).
Weather and water are warm, providing for a SAFE and pleasant atmosphere.
Coaches include some of the finest female collegiate rowers in the country,
they are patient and experienced coaches, and brilliant mentors and role models.

This program is aimed at girls 12-15 years old.
Your child must be at least 12 years old by the start of the program.

City Island Rowing is pleased to offer three Learn to Row programs this summer!
LTR - June (6/4 - 6/30)
M/W/F  5:30 pm to 7:00 pm and Saturdays 10:00 am - 11:30 am
LTR - July  (7/2 - 7/27)
M/T/Th/F  8:45 am - 10:30 am
LTR - August  (8/16 - 8/31)
M/T/Th/F  8:45 am - 10:30 am

Learn to Row is the first step to participation in this amazing sport.
Our LTR participants will be introduced to: 
Rowing Safety, basic fundamentals of the stroke, boat handling and the importance of team work.
By the end of their 4 weeks, athletes will be comfortable and competent at 
launching and landing shells, as well as rowing fluidly "on the feather" together.

What differentiates our LTR Classes from other programs is the small class size, 
great coach to athlete ratio and absolutely critically, our LTR classes only scull! 
This means each rower holds two oars rather than one. (Sculling v sweep rowing)
Sculling is MUCH safer on young, growing athletes' backs. 
Middle school aged athletes, especially, should NOT be sweep rowing in their first year of rowing.

Athletes who complete our LTR classes will be eligible to move up to our Skills Development Camps, 
to keep their enthusiasm and momentum going.
 June LTR graduates may sign up for either the July or August Skills Dev Camp
July LTR graduates may sign up for the August Skills Dev Camp

Athletes that progress well will be invited to join our
C.I.R.  Racing Team in the Fall as Novices.
