LWRC Junior Spring Program

LWRC proudly offers juniors a unique rowing experience, with emphasis on personal skill development, technique, and strength training. Juniors row in small boats – from singles to quads. The athletes are encouraged to develop confidence through teamwork and achieving individual goals. Our Juniors program accepts participants in grades 7 through 12 and is open to those who have completed a previous season with LWRC, participated in one of our summer programs or have previous rowing experience.  Juniors will have the opportunity to compete in three local regattas during the spring season. (US Rowing Membership, regatta fees, lodging and transportation not included in program cost)

Participants must be a LWRC student member to participate. Student quarterly membership is $130. Also option for a yearly membership, $410. Information on our Membership page.

Those who do not have prior experience, may enroll in a Junior Learn To Row class that will be offered the second week of the season.  The goal of the class is to allow athletes to become familiar with equipment, the stroke and become comfortable with rowing a small boat.  Depending on their progress, participants may have the opportunity to continue on and join the Junior’s squad; this will require coach’s approval.
