The TYRA 2018 Route 66 Regatta

On April 7th, 2018 the Tulsa Youth Rowing Association will host the Route 66 Regatta at Roger’s Point Park in Catoosa, OK. Rowing Teams from Oklahoma and surrounding states will compete in side by side sprint races over a 1800m (junior teams) and 1000m (adults) race course on the McClellan-Kerr channel close to the Port of Catoosa.

This is the fourth time TYRA has hosted the Route 66 Regatta. The regatta has grown over the years and looks to continue that trend. Last year the event featured over 120 rowers from nine different programs from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas and Kansas. Racing will start at 7:00am and will finish around 5:00pm. Many different boat types will be racing from single sculls to eight sweep boats. The teams participating will feature youth athletes and adult masters rowers.

The regatta serves as a fundraiser for TYRA and is also a platform to help promote the sport of rowing in the region. For registration and more information on the regatta, please visit the event’s Regatta Central Page at this link.

TYRA will be offering week-long summer camps for 7th to 12th-grade student-athletes in the month of June. For more information, please visit http://www.okrowing.org/tyra-summer-camps/

Tulsa Youth Rowing Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides rowing instruction for youth rowers in the Tulsa and surrounding areas.
