The Long Beach Rowing Assn. will use a $100,000 grant it received from the Los Angeles Olympic Committee Amateur Athletic Foundation to expand its junior program.
Most of the money will be used to purchase boats and oars, said Larry Goodhue, association president.
Boys and girls ages 10 to 18 will be taught how to row in a two-week training session starting June 15 at the Pete Archer Rowing Center, 5750 Marina Drive.
"They will be invited back at the end of the summer to a camp where a team will be formed to compete in rowing events throughout the year," Goodhue said. "Our goal is to re-establish rowing in high schools and junior high schools."
