DRC Juniors Summer Learn to Row Camp
Much like one does not traditionally join a football team mid-season, we have specific on-boarding events known as Learn To Row (LTR) camps for rowing. LTR is held before the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) begins school. LTR is held during regular practice times (weekday evenings).
LTR is free and gives an interested athlete a chance to learn the sport without committing to a full season. We limit our camps to 16 attendees. You must be entering 8th grade (or older) in order to attend. The DRC Waiver and a swim test must be received BEFORE a spot is reserved in a LTR camp.
Again, LTR is free! It is also a very time consuming task and represents a major commitment on the part of our coaches. Athletes will be taught the fundamentals of rowing, boat-handling skills, and safety. LTR is a fun experience and an athlete will be rowing on their own by the end of the week!
