Loyola Academy Junior High Rowing Opportunities

Junior High Spring Rowing:

This camp happens once a week (Sundays) for 6 weeks. The first 2 weeks, campers will be on land learning about the sport, utilizing on-land rowers and in the tanks.  Depending on the weather, they will be on the water for the remaining 4 weeks.

Welcome to the first Loyola Junior High Spring Camp! Based on requests from our summer campers, we are now offering a weekly camp for those 6th-8th graders that are interested in learning how to row. The camp consists of 6 Sunday sessions from 12:00 to 1:30 P.M. These sessions will take place in our boathouse. We will coach proper technique to our campers using our indoor rowing tanks.  Our workouts will be outdoors when weather permits, or indoors in the erg rooms.
