DRC Juniors Summer Learn to Row Camps
Much like one does not traditionally join a football team midseason, we have specific onboarding events known as Learn To Row (LTR) camps for rowing. LTR is held the week before the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) begins school as well as during the DISD spring break. The 2017/2018 dates for our LTR clinics are the week of August 21st and the week of March 12th. LTR is held during regular practice times (weekday evenings and Saturday mornings).
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 basics. LTR is a fun experience and an athlete will be rowing on their own by the end of the week!
This year's clinic will be held Aug 21-Aug 26, 2017
M-Th @ 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Sa @ 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Age Limits: Rising 8th grade and older
Class Size: 16 - For safety, we limit our camp to 16 attendees.
For athletes planning on competing with their high school programs in the fall (i.e. - ESD, Ursuline, Hockaday, St. Mark's): We are happy to have you, however due to our limited class size we would ask that you leave spots open in our clinic for those that do not have the opportunity to row for their own schools. Coaches from the schools listed above all run similar LTR programs over the summer and we would recommend trying to utilize these programs first.
Registration Link: https://www.regattacentral.com/clubs/?org_id=251 - the LTR camp will be found under "Camps & Clinics"
For those who can't attend that week, Coach Ivey is perfectly okay seeing your child in August when the Fall season starts.
