Our racing program is designed for rowers with the potential to compete at national and international regattas, including both sweep rowing and sculling.
The programs are structured not only for experienced rowers who wish to achieve peak performance and to race successfully at the highest level, but also for rowers who are focused on technique and fitness.
The ideal participants:
1. High School Students (entering 9th grade and above)
2. High School Graduates starting college in the fall
3. U23 – Collegiate rowers who want to keep up their skills and fitness over the summer. Race in U23 events at IDR and Club Nationals.
Races on the schedule: IDR, Philly Youth and Club Nationals. Canadian Henley will be added subject to athlete interest. To attend regattas, athletes must be enrolled in the session during which the regatta occurs.
Finish out the school year on the water before Summer Racing Season starts. MUST BE: Already members of our racing team or an experienced racer cleared by our Head Men’s or Head Women’s Coach.
