Program Outline for 2021
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and subsequent fluid nature of regatta schedules, the U17/U19/U23 racing program will have a flexible plan with several contingencies to maximize the experience of our athletes.
Regardless of circumstances, the focus of the program will be to challenge athletes, and then use the success or failure of that challenge to reinforce growth and grit. To that end, athletes will be grouped by gender and ability, to better personalize the experience each athlete has.
The program will focus on competitive training, with an eye towards successful performance at USRowing Nationals held at the Cooper River July 13-18. Video review, ergometer training, and seminars on choice topics will reinforce on-water sessions. Athletes will be grouped based skill level, mindset, and level of fitness.
Schedule: June 21st - July 18th, 7AM – 9:30AM, Monday through Friday. Saturday practices may be added as well.
We are looking for athletes who:
- want a challenging and competitive environment
- want to improve their stroke mechanics, strength, and stamina
- want the skills and knowledge set that will help them to become well-rounded athletes
- have a positive mindset towards work and working with others
All athletes must be active and registered USRowing members through August 2021, with a signed USRowing waiver. Athletes must have a “Basic membership + Regatta Package” or “Championship” membership.
