Renton Rowing Center is a place for all young people to find acceptance and find their sports team! We believe that all kids deserve a team, and an opportunity to row! Our Juniors program is for athletes grades 7th-12th with some prior experience in rowing. The fall season will consist of single sculling and cross training on land.
Juniors Practice Times
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 3:30pm - 5:00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 5:00pm - 6:30pm
What are we doing during COVID-19?
We have combined middle and high school and divided them into four groups based on skill level in order to keep groups small. We have added in outdoor land workout days in an effort to improve fitness and increase our capacity to get more kids on the water! All rowing on the water is occurring in single boats and land workouts are spaced to give everyone at least 6 feet of space. Juniors will have two water days during the week and two land days.
New to Rowing?
We aim to include any youth in the community interested in rowing.Due to COVID-19 our capacity to teach new rowers is limited and we will have to work to develop a plan on an individual basis so please contact the Program Director, Sarah Catto.
Due to COVID-19 our juniors do not have any upcoming regattas. We are on the lookout for any opportunities for scrimmages or other activities that would allow our juniors to interact with other clubs while staying safe!
