Junior Men’s Racing

The men will train and race in two sculling divisions: Junior A (under 19 years of age) and Junior B (under 17 years of age). Junior U19 practice are generally in the afternoon. Junior U17 practices are generally late afternoons and Saturdays

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 time frame 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 typically runs between 8 and 11 am Monday through Thursday. Further details and specifics will follow soon. Program will include opportunity to race in the Philadelphia Youth Regatta.
