2022 Summer Program Description

The focus of the program is to improve technical foundation, aerobic fitness, stability and flexibility.  Additional off-water workouts will be prescribed by coaches for athletes to complete on their own outside of practice times.

At the conclusion of the Summer Development Team the athlete will:

  • Be better prepared for his/her own team’s varsity rowing team tryouts
  • Demonstrate improved performances in technique, fitness, and stability
  • Articulate greater understanding of rowing concepts and specifics of more effective rowing and athleticism
  • Recognize & acknowledge his/her greatest strengths and weaknesses

This program is for rising high school aged athletes, who have completed at least one season of competitive rowing.

Intermediate and recreational rowers may be allowed in the program, at the discretion of the program Head Coach. In these cases, please fill out the program application/interest form above.

Candidates without competitive team experience, or who are younger than the minimum age described above are encouraged to enroll in CRI’s Summer Skills camps.

In addition to practices at the boathouse, coaches may also prescribe additional workouts to be completed by athletes on their own, away from the boathouse. These workouts will be manageable with equipment regardless of equipment that athletes may or may not already have at home, in order to ensure all athletes can complete the workouts.

To provide the best experience for each rower, coaches may place athletes in different groups based on observed skill and abilities, using as much information as is available to make this determination. If coaches determine that a rower's experience could be improved by moving them to a different group, they may ask the athlete to transfer to a group that is a better fit for their skill and ability level.
