Our junior rowing programs include: a highly successful competitive rowing team, a recreational program and private lessons. Our participants attend public and private middle and high schools across Los Angeles, including the San Fernando Valley, the Westside and the South Bay. All our programs emphasize teamwork, physical fitness and technical proficiency within a fun, respectful and nurturing environment.  Our junior rowers tend to be high achieving students, many of whom go on to the most highly sought after colleges in the country. Our goal is to provide an environment through which our rowers develop skills which will aid in their future success via the pursuit of excellence in the sport of rowing.

SCHOOL YEAR JUNIOR ROWING AT CYC  

VARSITY RACING TEAM
The CYC Varsity Racing Team prepares select junior boys and girls for local, regional and national competitions. It is limited to rowers willing to commit to a very intense training program. Not only are these rowers prepared for rowing in college or even the national team, they are better prepared for their futures outside rowing. Their training schedule requires attendance of five (or more) workouts per week at CYC, one or two workouts on their own and participation in regattas. The Varsity Racing Team's training schedule runs continuously from September until the Southwest Regional Championships in May or the Youth National Championships in June.  Schedule: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 4:15 - 6:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday 7:30 - 10:00 am.     

NOVICE RACING TEAM
The Novice Racing Team is designed for new rowers with no racing experience. The Novice Team is generally for those in ninth grade and older. Most of our Novice Team members begin by, either, rowing the summer prior to joining the team or rowing in our Recreational Rowing Program while in middle school. The Novice Team's goal is to produce well-trained and skilled rowers who will go on to participate on the Varsity Team. The Novice Program runs from September through late May. There are 4 workouts per week.  Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday 4:15 - 6:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday 7:30 - 10:00 am     

RECREATIONAL ROWING PROGRAM
This program is intended for boys and girls ages 12-18, who have had at least a basic introduction to the sport of rowing (sculling). The program is also intended to allow experienced junior rowers a chance to continue rowing on a more casual basis than being on a competitive team. The program will include rowing in quads, doubles and singles. Occasional sessions will be land based and make use of rowing machines. There is a once per week and a twice per week option. The program runs most Saturdays and Mondays from September until May. There will be occasional days when the program will not meet due to holidays, club regattas or some other unforeseen event.  Schedule: Saturdays 10:15 am - 12:15 pm and/or Mondays 4:15 - 6:15 pm
