JUNIOR VARSITY PROGRAM

NEW YORK ROWING JUNIOR COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

VARSITY

"Real Athletes Row"

We are dedicated to helping young people learn and appreciate the art of rowing and sculling while competing at the top level of competition.
The athletes from sophomore to senior years will be taught top level rowing within a safe and fun environment, ensuring they develop their rowing skills to the optimum level, while developing an appreciation of what it is to be competitive.  While our overarching goal is to prepare the rowers for the competitive season and to strive to be the best, the top priority of the program is to provide an opportunity for athletes to learn the value of mastering new skills, the virtues of teamwork and the thrill of racing. We will challenge every athlete who comes to us to be the best that they can be!

Why the New York Rowing?

  • The core values taught are: safety; access and inclusiveness; competitiveness; collaboration; environment; and personal growth.
  • Our program is purposefully affordable
  • Family bonds can strengthen if parents participate in NYRA Masters rowing programs or Rowing Support Group
  • We have the only local access to an international standard training course
  • Coaches have collegiate-level or higher rowing experience and the head coach has coached teams/rowers to national medals and international representation

Varsity rowers participating in the Fall season should plan on attending each of these regattas.  If for any reason you cannot attend a scheduled regatta you must inform your coach at the beginning of the season.  In addition, individual participation in regattas is based upon practice attendance, rowing ability, conditioning, the needs of the team, the availability of appropriate race entries and the coaches’ discretion.  Accordingly, racing in the regattas is NOT guaranteed however, every effort is made to insure maximum participation by team members.  In addition, the pro-rated costs of attending each regatta (e.g. boat entry fees, boat transportation costs) will be the responsibility of each individual rower and must to be paid in full before the scheduled regatta.
