Juniors: “BRASS”

Juniors in the rowing world are rowers in high school, while middle schoolers are “mods.” But our juniors program covers both categories, so people aged 11-18 are all encouraged to come out.

Our summer program for juniors will consist of at least 17 practices, 9-11 AM, between the dates of July 10-August 23. We will add more practices as we can line up guest coaches. The aim of this session will be boat comfort and preparing for the fall rowing season. The cost is $170 plus a junior membership, which costs $30. To sign up, click here.

For fall and spring, we’ve got two groups, which are explained below, and they go by the team name “BRASS,” proudly wearing our brass-colored uniforms and harking back to our old club name.

Our juniors are boys and girls from local public, private, and home schools. They sweep and scull. They row singles, doubles, quads, and fours. They cox and navigate. They learn leadership and followership. They erg and race. They de-rig and load. And they become physically strong and technically proficient in the process.

We’re proud to have skilled coaching from among our paid staff and our many volunteers, and we’re grateful to have a parent-and-guardian group that offers of their time, talent, and treasure.

If you’re a new rower, you’re in 8th grade or below, or you aren’t interested in competition, the “Middle School Juniors” program is for you. Practices will likely be Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4-6 PM, and Saturdays, 9-11 AM, though details will follow once summer rolls into fall.

If you’re an experienced rower who’s in high school and interested in competition, sign up for “High School Juniors,” which will most likely practice on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 4-6 PM, and Saturdays, 9-11 AM, June 11.
