Lake Oswego Water Sports

Lake Oswego Community Rowing:

 

Wondering what to do during the last week before school starts in Lake Oswego?  If you are a student athlete who is new to the sport of rowing, Lake Oswego Community Rowing has a great opportunity awaiting you.  LOCR, which operates from the Charlie S. Brown Water Sports Center on the Willamette River, is offering a free learn-to-row camp next week.  The beginner camp is open to youth, 8th through 12th grade

 

The week-long class begins on Monday, August 25th and meets daily from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.   Novice rowers will learn about boat safety, proper rowing technique on land and then progress to the water.

 

If it turns out that you are a natural, you can continue as a Youth Team Rower and participate in competitive regattas.  If you happen to be a parent or older brother of a student, you too have opportunities to learn to row as LOCR offers programs to both youth and adults and offers both sculling and sweep rowing classes.

 

How to find LOCR:  The official address is 350 Oswego Pointe Drive, Lake Oswego, OR 97034.... but that won't quite get you to the boathouse. From State Street in downtown Lake Oswego, turn east onto Foothills Drive (just north of Albertsons), and follow it until reaching a stop sign at the intersection of Foothills Drive and Oswego Pointe Drive.  Turn right onto Oswego Pointe Dr. and follow the road to the bottom until reaching a round-about and parking lot associated with The Foundry (former location of the Ram Brewpub). You can park in the lot just ahead and to the left of the round-about, right next to Foothills Park. You'll then need to make your way across the parking lot to the far southeast corner where there is walking path; following that path to the right leads to the LOCR Boathouse.
