Junior Rowing

Camp Randall Rowing Club (CRRC) offers a competitive rowing program for high school students throughout our community. No previous experience is required. This program, known as Juniors in the world of rowing, is also open to mature 8th grade students who have some previous rowing experience.

Fall/Winter Season August 21, 2017 – March 2, 2018

The team practices at the Brittingham Boathouse, 617 North Shore Drive, on Monona Bay near the Monona Terrace Convention Center. Camp Randall Juniors participate in regattas throughout the Midwest, competing against other club and high school crews. Camp Randall offers a free two-week trial for new rowers.  HOWEVER, registration and signing the USRowing waiver are also necessary for this trial period. Payment is not due until the two-week trial has ended and the rower wishes to continue with the program.

The year is divided into two seasons, Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter.
