Philadelphia City Rowing
Summer Learn To Row

Philadelphia City Rowing, an entirely free, competitive youth rowing program for high school students from throughout the School District of Philadelphia, will offer free Learn To Row sessions this summer. Each Learn To Row session will be two-weeks long and take place Monday through Friday from 9am to noon at Lloyd Hall, #1 Boathouse Row. Participants may register for one of the following sessions:

o Session I: July 11-July 22
o Session II: July 25-August 5
o Session III: August 8-August 19

Learn To Row will introduce participants to the basics of rowing, including boat handling, terminology, and of course on the water technique. The PCR coaching staff includes former US National Team athletes and
participants will have access to high-quality equipment. Each session ends with an intra-squad scrimmage!

Learn To Row is a fun and unique summer experience in and of itself; however, it’s also a perfect way to try a
new sport and decide if you would like to join the competitive PCR team that practices during the school
year and competes in numerous major regattas. Open tryouts are held at the beginning of each fall and spring and Learn To Row is the best way to prepare.

Spots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. To be eligible, participants must be enrolling a Philadelphia public high school or charter high school in the upcoming school year (2011-2012), they must pass a basic swim test on June 16th, 4pm at Drexel University Recreation Center (33rd and Market) and they must have had a physical within 1 year of their participation in the program.
