Sculling Development Program

This program is designed for high school students who desire to improve their technique. Rowers are beyond the novice level but do not have enough experience for the top racing teams. The program is tailored for advanced novice rowers but others wishing to maintain their physical condition and improve their sculling to better themselves for their own high school program are also welcome.

The program follows the same period as the junior programs – 6 days a week, with the exception being the program ends the week before the Canadian Henley. Rowers will race in the Independence Day and Youth Regattas.

Novice Program

This program accepts young men and women who have never rowed to learn the fundamentals of sculling. Participants will become proficient at handling boats, rowing as a crew, and safely rowing a single on the river. This is a great prep for those interested in rowing in high school and sweep rowers wishing to learn sculling. The program also accepts adults who are looking for additional coaching.

The Novice Program will meet Coach Ray D’Amico between 8 and 11 am Monday through Thursday. Program beings Monday June 26 and finishes Thursday July 28. Program will include opportunity to race in the Philadelphia Youth Regatta on July 22.
