Welcome to OLRA

Indoor Winter Training for Juniors

We have an indoor training program with the goal to maintain fitness and improve technique while the snow flies and there is ice on the lake. Work is primarily done on ergometers with weight sessions and core strength to supplement training. The core work will be focused on the complimentary goals of reduced injuries, better power transmission and improved posture. We will train three days a week (usually MWF) from 1 Dec to 23 Feb on days when school is in session. Come join us!

Registration is HERE.
