The Tulsa Youth Rowing Association is looking for 7/8th grade and high school-aged athletes to join their competitive program. The team regularly competes on the national level and our athletes are also successful in gaining college scholarships at universities all over the US. The team will be hosting summer camps in June and early July to allow participants to try rowing for the first time.

Organized swim test times are as follows:

Friday, June 3rd at 5 pm (Bring Swim Test paperwork and $10 for the swim test administration)

Friday, June 17th at 5 pm (Bring Swim Test paperwork and $10 for the swim test administration)

Additionally, parents can bring their athlete(s) to the Lewis and 19th YWCA location and get an individual swim test after 5 pm to 7:30 pm on Monday and Friday evenings. (Bring Swim Test paperwork and $10 for the swim test administration)

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.
