ASRA Holiday Learn to Row Program - Summer 2017

We invite applications for the following Learn to Row courses.

LTR 1: 3rd - 7th July 09.00 – 13.00

LTR 2: 10th - 14th July 13.00 – 17:00

LTR 3: 17th – 21st July 09:00 – 13:00

These LTR weeks cost £50 per person, but are heavily subsidised by ASRA and there is an expectation that if your son / daughter wishes to continue rowing after the LTR week, then this will be done with ASRA.

The ASRA boathouse is situated on South Esplanade West, Torry.

Your child will need a snack and a water bottle each day. As rowing is a demanding sport it is important to keep energy levels topped up and to remain hydrated throughout.

You will need basic outdoor PE kit to take part. It is important to pack enough kit for two separate outdoor sessions a day and a light waterproof in the event of rain. A change of socks is important as they can get wet whilst getting in and out of the boats. Obviously, the weather can be very varied, so please pack accordingly.

Noted below is an outline of the programme for the week. Days are split into two sessions with a break in between for a snack and rest:

The coaches involved are qualified Scottish Rowing Coaches who are insured and fully disclosed. Application forms may be downloaded <Click here>. Places are however limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Those participants who wish to continue rowing after their LTR program are encouraged to attend the ASRA transition week which will take place between the 7th & 11th August 13:00 – 17:00, the transition week is included in the LTR cost.
