Our goal is to expose youth rowers to the competitive world of rowing. By participating in the NRC Junior Racers, students will develop stamina, technique, and race strategy in preparation for regional regattas. This program will help prepare 9th-12th grade athletes who are interested in rowing at the collegiate level. We will offer high-quality coaching, additional intense training, and opportunities to compete against other crews from the Northeast. While racing, we abide by USRowing's Rules of Rowing.
