Not everyone that we work with will have aspirations to compete for their school, region or country. But for those that do, we have a performance programme led by Olympic Champion Mark Hunter that will help young athletes perform to their full potential.
Our objective is to provide opportunities and experiences of indoor, on water and adaptive rowing and other sports that improve the health, fitness and well-being of young people in the interests of social welfare. LYR works with people aged 11 to 18 in London who would not otherwise have access to these activities.
Sport, rowing in particular, teaches resilience, communication and character: life skills that will signpost young people to future employment, education and training. LYR works very closely with our young people to make sure they harness the skills that rowing gives them to be the best that they can be.
