LPRA Can Host Your Business Teambuilding Session!

Rowing is the ultimate team sport, and putting your business team together in a rowing shell will teach them what it really means to work together!  

One fun day on the lake and a boatload of lessons learned - this is a teambuilding  experience your employees will never forget.

LPRA experienced rowers, coaches, and coxswains will show your people basic rowing technique on shore before dividing them into two 8-person rowing shells.  Team members who elect to not row will follow along in a patio party boat as the two rowing crews work their way across the lake, learning to row efficiently as a team.  

At the end of the day your two crews will race!  The winning crew members will take both the trophy and bragging rights.

If you are interested in giving your business or office group a great teambuilding experience, email LPRA at
