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.

Youth Summer Clinic
July 21 – July 24, 9 am – 1 pm, $300
Riverfront Boathouse, Riverside Park
While the ongoing COVID epidemic has made changes to our program necessary, we will still run youth summer rowing clinics out of Hartford. All rowers will be taught in single-person rowing shells only. All interested athletes age 12-18 are welcome, no previous experience required. Athletes will be grouped based on prior rowing and sculling experience so that each athlete receives ability-appropriate skill instruction. All participants must know how to swim.
If you are a sweep rower with no sculling experience, register as a novice.
