SUMPRO is offered in June and July, starting right after National Learn to Row Day, and consists of two four-week sessions: sculling and sweep rowing.

Session I: Sculling 3 June - 27 June
5:28 pm -­ 7:03 pm

Session I meets Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday of each week beginning Monday, 3 June at 5:28 pm, and lasts until Thursday, 27 June. In sculling each rower has two oars, one in each hand. The objective of this class is to get participants comfortable enough with their rowing skills such that each can be certified to go out on the river in a one or two person shell.

Session II: Sweep 1 July - 25 July
5:28 pm -­ 7:03 pm

Session II meets Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursdayof each week. Participants will learn how to “Sweep.” Each person has one oar and sits in a boat with 7 other rowers. At the end of the course the students will be ready to join the masters’, collegiate, or high school rowers.

COST: $150 per session
fee includes TRC membership good until March 2014

TRC Youth Rowing Camp

The Toledo Rowing Club Youth Rowing Camp is a “learn to row” program that introduces the sport of rowing to youth ages 11-14 (11-year-olds must be entering 6th grade). During the two-week session, the athlete will progress quickly from the basics of sweep rowing (rowing with one oar) to special rowing training techniques and rowing on the water. We emphasize safety in all aspects of this program. This is a fun and relaxed way to get to know this wonderful team sport in the rich tradition of St. Ursula/St. John’s Crews and the Toledo Rowing Club. No prior rowing experience is needed.  All equipment provided.
