2021 TYRA Summer Camps Swim Test
We have partnered with the YWCA this summer and they have very kindly offered a couple of dates and times for an organized swim test for TYRA camp participants. The swim test will be at 1910 S. Lewis Ave. Tulsa, OK 74104 on June 14th or June 18th from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Your child only needs to participate in one of these sessions. We wanted to provide a couple of options for you!
The kids will take the swim test at the same time so please arrive early in order to sign a waiver at the front desk before proceeding to the pool area.
A coach will be present to watch the kids swim and get a sense of their swimming ability prior to the summer camps.
The club has worked extremely hard to build a program that provides the opportunity for the youth of Tulsa to participate in the sport of rowing. The club is a supportive, yet challenging environment for student-athletes from many schools across the region to come together and represent the city of Tulsa. The sport of rowing is a fun and rewarding discipline that teaches the value of hard work, teamwork, perseverance, and mental resilience.
