What to expect
Youth Learn to Scull (YLTS) uses the same curriculum as our Adult Learn to Scull program, but is specifically tailored for high school aged rowers. Instructors will demonstrate basic proper technique geared to teach participants to use single and double scull shells. Participants will learn how to adapt a sweep rowing stroke into a sculling one and how to safely maneuver sculling equipment unassisted both on land and in the water. Additional instruction on how to re-enter capsized craft from the water will be provided.
