LARA Mission Statement

Founded in 1985, Loyola Academy Rowing Association (LARA) provides a rare, highly desirable opportunity for Loyola Academy students to participate in the sport of rowing. Of fundamental importance, LARA believes that the arduous, demanding nature of the sport creates the ideal environment for the physical, mental, and spiritual development of student athletes. To this end, LARA endeavors to lead students toward recognition, appreciation and fulfillment of their true athletic potential through the shared pursuit of winning both the MSRA Midwest Championships and the SRAA National Championships. The teams, as constructed, strive toward excellence with dedication to Jesuit ideals, including aspiring to become “Women and Men for Others.”
