Our Summer racing program continues to build our athletes – ready for competition, including both sweep rowing and sculling; often in smaller boats.
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.
New this summer – a flexible schedule. You choose the total number of weeks to row, and the weeks you will row. Easy to schedule around vacations, and maximize your rowing.

The more sessions you choose, the less expensive per week.

Prices reflect program fees only. Regatta entry fees are arranged by NRRA and billed to individual families and should be paid in advance of the regatta. Athlete travel costs and travel arrangements are handled by individual families and are not included in the program pricing. We encourage families to coordinate with each other.
