Junior Racing

June 22 to July 19, 2020. This team trains at CRI during the first half of the summer, with the opportunity at the end of the program to compete at the Philadelphia Youth Regatta in July.

Program Description

The Junior Racing Program offers selected athletes from any program the opportunity to train in a competitive practice environment and race at the end of four weeks. This is geared towards athletes with at least one competitive season of experience who are looking to develop their rowing skills and fitness in team boats. Participants are expected to attend all practices and the culminating regatta. Applications from any athlete with the required experience will be considered on a rolling basis until the deadline of May 1st. Since applications are processed on a rolling basis, accepted athletes will have 2 weeks from their acceptance date to register and pay for the program. Until June 1, withdrawls from the program are subject to CRI's refund policy. After June 1, program fees are non-refundable.
