Junior Team - Spring/Summer Season

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.

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.
