Kansas Rowing to Host Community Clinic

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas Athletics and the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department have teamed up to offer a community rowing clinic. The clinic will take place on Saturday, September 13 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at KU’s Burcham Park Boathouse, located at 200 Indiana St.

The clinic is designed as an introduction to rowing and is geared toward participants with a minimal background in the sport. Instructors for the clinic will be KU rowing coaches and members of the KU women’s rowing team.

The clinic features current members of the Kansas rowing team divided up with citizens of Lawrence that were unfamiliar with the sport. Attendees receive a tour of Kansas’ Burcham Park Boathouse and practice on the team’s ergometer machines prior to launching out onto the river in eight-person boats.
