This six-week course (July 13-August 19) is an opportunity for rowers with at least one competitive season* to add in summer mileage and receive coaching without the time commitment and stress of racing. The focus is a technical one with competition between boats thrown in as a way to increase speed & put technical changes to the test.
*Those athletes who complete one of the June WBC Learn to Row camps may participate upon the recommendation of a WBC coach.
Rowers participating in this program will be expected to:
- Attend as many practices as possible. Practices will be held Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday, 4:00-6:00p (drop off no earlier than 3:45p, pick up by 6:15p). While attendance is not mandatory, the coaches do need to be informed of any major changes in the athletes’ schedules so they can plan boat assignments and practice plans accordingly.
- Be flexible in the lineups. Because of the fluid nature of this program, athletes will row a variety of different hulls with a variety of different rowers. The emphasis will be on sculling, but if numbers permit there may be some sweep rowing as well.
- Have fun!~ This program is truly one of a kind in Philadelphia. The coaching is top notch, while the atmosphere remains light. There is a focus on technique and gaining mileage that will prepare any level of Junior rower for the 2021-22 season.
Director of Junior Programs is Marie Leonard. Head Coach of Technical Training is Joe Sullivan.
The fee for this 6 week program is $800, payable by check. This fee includes the yearly HRC facilities fee*. Please email our Program Coordinator for registration information.
*If an athlete has participated in ANY 2021 racing program at Hines Rowing Center (this includes all HRC scholastic teams) they have already paid the yearly HRC fee; the total for these families will be $750.
