SUMMER PROGRAM FOR RETURNING JUNIORS
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.
