Youth Rowing Team

The LOCR Youth Rowing Team is available to athletes in 8th - 12th grade (13 -18 years old) in the greater Portland area, including Portland, West Linn, Beaverton, Tigard-Tualatin, Oregon City, Wilsonville, as well as Lake Oswego.
  • Open to 8th grade - high school students, ages 13 - 18
  • NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
Practice is Monday through Friday, 3:45 - 6:15, and Saturday mornings 7:30 - 10:00am. We have a Fall racing season, Winter training season, Spring racing season, plus options to row during the summer months. During the Fall and Spring racing seasons we are "on the water", rowing out of the Charlie S. Brown Water Sports Center, with a focus on boat skills and speed. Winter season is dryland practice at Palisades Elementary School and the focus is on strength training and conditioning.

Rowers new to the sport are considered Novice for their first year and then advance to Varsity after that. Through a partnership with the local high schools, Varsity athletes have an opportunity to "letter" just as they would in a traditional sport through their school.

The team travels to Regattas around the Northwest in the Fall and Spring seasons. At LOCR everyone practices, and everyone races.
