Our youth racing team is back on the water this fall and ready for another great season. Our youth rowing program blends urban and suburban participants who practice and race together, giving both groups the opportunity to learn from one another in our own version of a magnet school for rowers. Past rowers have earned rowing scholarships to college, participated on US Junior National Development Teams, and earned invitations to the prestigious USRowing Youth Nationals.

Practices begin on Tuesday, September 3 and run through our fall banquet at the end of October. The team meets weekday afternoons at the Greater Hartford Jaycees Boathouse in Riverside Park in Hartford at 4:00 and wraps up sessions by 5:45 pm. There is a bus (for additional fee) available for students traveling from West Hartford. Please contact Assistant Director of Rowing Jonathan Near with any questions or concerns about the daily schedule. The program consists of four teams: Novice Boys, Novice Girls, JV/Varsity Boys, and JV/Varsity Girls. Any athlete 12 and up is welcome to sign up for one of the Novice teams, while rowers with prior race experience are welcome to sign up for JV/Varsity.
