Eleven youth rowing teams from across the metro will compete in the Spring Youth Rowing League Championships on Saturday, May 13, in downtown Oklahoma City’s Boathouse District. Racing begins at 5:00p on the Oklahoma River.
The OKC RIVERSPORT Youth Rowing League is open to all middle schools and high schools, and is free to all Title I schools. Students practice for 12 weeks with RIVERSPORT coaches, then race against other local schools on the Oklahoma River.
“It’s a really great sports experience,” said RIVERSPORT OKC Executive Director Mike Knopp. “Rowing on one of RIVERSPORT’s youth teams inspires our young athletes – and sometimes kids who don’t yet know they are athletes – to go for something more than they imagined possible.”
This season we will recognize the highest number of seniors ever to compete in RIVERSPORT’s Youth Rowing League. A total of 17 seniors from five schools in the Oklahoma City metro will be honored for their dedication and commitment to the league throughout their entire high school career. These seniors will be presented with a Dedicated Senior Award at the upcoming Regatta.
"I am humbled by the opportunity to have witnessed the growth of this year’s group of seniors and very proud of the work they have put in over the past 4 years," said Youth Rowing League coordinator Gena Terrill. “This year’s dedicated senior class will leave behind a great legacy for future athletes in both their school teams and the youth rowing league. "
Racing takes place Saturday, May 13 5:00p-8:00p, on the Oklahoma River in the Boathouse District.
