Join our Juniors Team!

Our Juniors program draws athletes from several area high schools; Orono, Wayzata, Minnetonka, Mound Westonka, Blake, Breck & Benilde. Our team has had significant successes over the past 6 years, sending several boats to US Rowing Youth Nationals, winning the NWIRA Juniors Points Award. Many of our LLRC graduates have gone on to row at the collegiate level, because of the start they had with LLRC. Our alum have gone on to row at U Wisconsin, Syracuse, U Washington, Williams, Dartmouth, and Boston University, U of Kansas, UCLA, Marist, U of St Thomas!

 

We offer indoor training in the winter months for rowers to focus on conditioning and prepare themselves to be in top shape for hitting the water when the ice melts! Our juniors train at the Long Lake Fire Dept. under the expert guidance of Coach Nicholas Miller. Training focuses on cardio conditioning on rowing ergometers, along with strength and core work.

We offer training in one month sessions to accommodate rowers returning from winter sports! Sign up for all Jan-Feb-March for optimal benefits!

 

Once the ice is off of Long Lake, and the water/ air temps meet our safety standards, we launch into on the water training! On the water training is held from the south shore of Long Lake, at Birch's on the Lake Brewhouse & Supperclub

 

Our typical practices are:

Winter-Spring Indoors: Mon -Thurs 4:15-5:30 pm, Sat 8:30 am at the Long Lake Fire Dept.

Once the air/water temps are safe, we will start rowing on the water 3 days/ week, and one day will be focused on egging
