Event description

Description

Looking for an excuse to escape the gym and spend time outdoors? Head to the water! Tulsa Youth Rowing Association is offering an introduction to the sport of rowing. The FREE event will take place at Roger’s Landing Public Use Area in Catoosa, OK. The day will start at 8:45am and finish around 12:00pm (see schedule below). All participants will need to sign a 2017 USRowing Waiver (signed by parent/guardian if participant is under 18 years of age) and have completed a swim test (can be completed anywhere where a licensed lifeguard can supervise).

In June, more than 75 rowing clubs around the country will open their doors to the public and offer an introduction to the sport of rowing. Learn to Row Day events are not only an ideal opportunity for someone who’s curious about the sport to give it a try, the day is a chance to build friendships and social networks.

Getting in shape, trying something new, enjoying the outdoors or meeting new people in the community – whatever the reason, learning about the sport of rowing can be an unforgettable experience and have potential to be a lifelong endeavor. For more information, visit www.okrowing.org or contact Coach Tamara Clayton at coacht@okrowing.org.

“Learn to Row Day is a wonderful opportunity to see firsthand what rowing is all about. It's a great low-impact sport for people of all ages, and all abilities, from those learning for the first time, to highly skilled rowers.” said event organizer and TYRA head coach Tamara Clayton.

What to wear and bring?
-
Athletic attire with running shoes work best. Please refrain from any baggy materials, they can and will get damaged via moveable parts in the rowing boat. Spandex material is encouraged, but it is not necessary. If you choose not to wear spandex material, soccer length shorts work best (basketball length shorts are too long).
- Do not forget your own personal water bottle (1 liter or less), sunscreen, sunglasses, or a hat.
