Learn to Row 2 Information

LTR 2 is the 2nd level in SRA's introductory rowing program. After having completed LTR 1, athletes have the option to progress to LTR2, with a focus on 1 and 2 person shells. These shells require more technique, more focus, and more skill, but athletes will improve at a significantly higher speed than in traditional 4 person shells.

Note: This is the second camp of the summer and only open to those who have done the LTR 1.

Learn to Row 3 Information

LTR 3 is the last stage in SRA's introductory program. After 4 weeks of rowing, LTR 3 athletes are now ready to put their new found skills into action in a variety of boats. Stay on the water all summer long and meet your teammates before the Fall!

Note: This is the third camp of the summer and only open to those who have done the LTR 1.  (you do not have to do LTR 2 in order to participate in LTR 3)

 

About the Program

The Charles R Wood Learn to Row Program was created to offer the experience of rowing to interested children entering grades 7 and above. The Learn to Row Program is an opportunity for a child to learn about the sport of rowing through participation. While the majority of time is spent on the water, there is also dry land training and education about boats and equipment. Some impromptu racing and ice cream eating may occur. 

The Charles R Wood Foundation was created in 1978 by local entrepreneur Charles R Wood founder of Storytown USA, the present day Great Escape Theme Park, the Double H Hole in the Woods Camp for critically ill children and many other endeavors and businesses in the area. The Foundation was established to provide assistance to areas of special need in the region, with an emphasis on children's health care and the arts.
