2020-2021 Winter Youth

2020-2021 Winter Youth


A coached rowing program for youth to learn all aspects of the sport and prepare for competitive races. There’s a place on the team for everyone. Rowing is a sport for everyone! Develops teamwork, fitness, coordination and leadership skills.

Due to overwhelming requests from the team, our 2020 winter program will begin outside with 5 weeks of coached strength and conditioning land practice called “Hustle for the Muscle”.  After the new year, the team will be split into 2 groups and each group will have 4 weeks of coached Zoom erg practices. There will be an option to be in both groups, space permitting, for an additional fee.

CCRA is committed to the health and safety of our rowers and staff. We will be following the recommendations of local authorities and US Rowing regarding COVID-19 concerns and conform to social distancing guidelines during these land practices. All rowers and families must read and agree to adhere to CCRA’s COVID-19 Policies and Procedures.
