Youth Learn To Row is a fantastic introduction to UA Crew and is open to boys and girls, ages 12-18. Participants will learn the basics of Sweep Rowing (using one 15 foot long oar), oar mechanics on the water, safety on the water, rowing's unique language, how to "set" a boat, proper launching techniques, and the rowing stroke under the supervision of experienced alumni coaches and coxswains.
Each staff member has passed a background check through the Upper Arlington School District.
Participants do not need to be enrolled in Upper Arlington schools to participate.
All participants must be able to pass a swim test, consisting of swimming 50 meters, treading water for 15 minutes, and putting on a life vest while in the water.
