Junior Team - Spring/Summer Season
March 1 – July 31, 2021
The spring season of rowing is considered the “championship” season in rowing. Athletes are training for a 2000m race, one that will roughly take them between 6minutes and 9 minutes on the water pending what type of boat class they are in. Our athletes start their spring season training in early March, attend an annual spring training trip in LaFollette, TN, and compete in regattas locally, regionally, and nationally.
Due to COVID, we are planning a modified spring schedule following the same procedures we had in place this past fall. Our athletes will practice in smaller groups throughout the day. The schedule for those are below. Our competition schedule remains unclear at this time and we will provide more information as we have it. We are currently planning to be in 1xs and athletes may be placed in a “double bubble” to row exclusively with one other individual. Should things allow to expand into bigger boats we will provide further details at that time. For a full summary of our COVID-protocols CLICK HERE.
Our season continues into the summer, taking advantage of the warmer months in the Midwest. During the summer, our athletes work on their technical skills in preparation for future rowing season. The team attends a couple of regattas during the summer season to stay in the competitive mindset and have fun. Practices are usually held early in the morning and coaches work around any vacations that are planned; it’s a more relaxed setting during the summer.
