Spring 2017 Schedule

*Subject to change – rely on your rower’s coach for up to date information*

Nashville Sprints, 4/22
The kids back in action at practice in preparation for some great racing in Nashville on 4/22.  We also look forward to having the Novices join the fun for their first race of the season.  Here is a link with info about the venue, etc…  (Hamilton Creek Park – Nashville, TN, 37217)

St. Louis Sprints, 4/30
Hopefully we’ll see a lot of you in Nashville, but if you can’t make it we’ll be racing against some great competition on Creve Coeur Lake on Sunday, 4/30.  The racing will start around 8:00am and finish (hopefully) around Noon.  Your rower’s coach will let them know when they’ll be racing and when they should arrive at the boathouse, etc.

Indy Sprints, 5/7
More racing for our Varsity and Novice crews just west of Indianapolis.  This is another beautiful park and venue.  It hosted the 1994 World Rowing Championships!  (Eagle Creek State Park – 7840 W 56th St, Indianapolis, IN 46254).

Midwest Junior Rowing Championships, 5/20-21
Final spring regatta for most of the kids.  They’ll race the best competition from the entire Midwest region!  (East Fork State Park – 3294 Elklick Rd, Bethel, OH 45106)

USRowing Youth Nationals, June 9-11

Chicago Sprints, July 7-9 (depart early Friday July 7)
Summer Juniors Rowing Program – details TBD. (Lincoln Park Lagoon – N. Cannon Drive, Chicago, IL 60614)



Our summer program for returning kids will start on Wednesday, June 14th and finish with the Chicago Sprints, 7/8-9.  Practices will be Mon-Fri 7-9am and Sat 10-12.

This program will really focus on rowing technique and will be a great opportunity for the kids to make improvements.  It’s also a FANTASTIC way for the 2016-2017 Novices to start making the transition to Varsity!

The summer rowing fee will once again be $100.  There will be an extra regatta fee for those attending the Chicago Sprints.

2016-2017 seniors are welcome to participate, but they would mainly practice and race together in Open events.
