Junior/U23 Sculling (New for 2021)
The Upper Valley Rowing Foundation Junior/U23 Sculling program is open to all UVRF rowers who have completed at least one novice rowing program at UVRF or elsewhere, or who have prior rowing experience at the club or collegiate level, and are under 23 years of age (or still in college). Those who want to learn to scull, to improve their rowing skills through sculling, and/or who express interest in competition are all welcome.
This is an opportunity to train in small boats (1x, 2x) and big boats (4x) with a focus on maximizing technique. Experienced sweep rowers owers with minimal or no sculling or small boat experience will come away with confidence in small boats by the end of the summer. Those who are interested in fitness in preparation for summer (1k/2k) and fall (5k) racing seasons will find a rigorous program available tailored to their skill levels. Everyone can expect to have fun and to improve boat handling skills which will transfer to sweep rowing or continued sculling training. Minimum number of participants - 6
This year's Jr/U23 sculling program is divided into four two-week sessions. Join for one session or all four. Each session will be stand-alone. However, rowers who sign up for multiple sessions will follow an ongoing progression of skill and technical work rather than repeating a one time 2-week format. All programs will take place at the Kendal waterfront site. Program fees for each session are noted below. Rowers will be responsible for racing entry fees, to be determined in advance of each regatta, should the opportunity to compete arise during each session.
