SRC’s two-week summer sessions are an intensive introduction to rowing for youngsters. The program is also a great way for athletes that have been in one or more of our beginner/intermediate programs throughout the year to continue into the summer. Athletes are exposed to both sweep (one oar) and sculling (two oars) and experience rowing in singles as well as team boats. Focus is on technique as well as improving fitness. In addition to spending time in the boats, athletes will do land training (erging, running, and calisthenics). On the recommendation of coaches, participants can graduate to the beginner or intermediate programs in the fall.
Spring/Fall Practice: Monday-Friday 3:30-6 p.m. plus weekend practices/regattas.
Spring: March 7 – May 27
Fall Pre-Season/Try-Out: August 15 – August 26 (practice Mon-Fri 3-5 p.m.)
Fall: August 29 – November 11
Winter Practice : Boys: Monday-Friday 3:30-5:30 p.m., Girls: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 5:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Friday 3:30-5:30 p.m. November 28 – March 3 (no 12/26-1/2)
This is a competitive program that represents the club at many regattas throughout the year. Athletes have the opportunity to compete in several regattas each season in both sweep and sculling events. Attendance at practice and regattas is required (more than 3 unexcused absences could jeopardize the athlete’s boat placement as well as result in dismissal from the program). Water and land training are used to help athletes develop both mentally and physically. Improvements in technique and fitness level are measured through periodic testing. Seat placement (varsity, junior varsity, and novice) is determined by test performance, commitment, and work ethic.
Admittance into the program is based on technique, erg scores, coach’s recommendation, and a try-out. Those interested on being on the team should contact Junior Program Coordinator, Mary Green, at email@example.com. The Fall Pre-Season/Try Out is open to anyone interested. In the winter athletes from the intermediate program will be invited to competitive practice for a try out session as time and space allows.
SUMMER COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

Participation in the racing team is by invitation only by the Head Coaches. Athletes selected will be expected to be at all practices and regattas. Additional guidance in nutrition, strength training, stretching, injury prevention and sports psychology will also be offered. Athletes not in our Spring Competitive Racing Team but interested in this summer program should contact Boys Head Coach Sharon Kriz, firstname.lastname@example.org or Girls Head Coach Gordon Getsinger, email@example.com.
Competitive Training Team: practice Monday-Friday 3-5pm.
June 15 – July 29
The Training Team will be comprised of novice rowers, V/JV rowers that are not on the summer racing team, and all others interested in becoming a competitive rower. There are program standards that all athletes must meet (these standards are based on age and experience). Athletes in the SRC spring beginner and intermediate programs that meet the standards will be recommended by their coaches. Athletes from outside the SRC program should contact Mary Green, firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the program standards.
Athletes in this program will train for fitness and technique both on the water and on land with the goal of learning more about being a competitive rower and preparing for the pre-season try outs.
There is an option to sign up on a weekly basis for those that can not commit to the entire session.
