Junior Rowing

The CYC Junior Rowing program is open to boys and girls ages 13 - 18CYC membership is not required to participate. Our program draws from public and private schools across Los Angeles, including the San Fernando Valley, the Westside and the South Bay. We emphasize teamwork, physical fitness and technical proficiency within a fun, respectful and nurturing environment. Our size and flexibility allows our athletes to reach their full potential within the sport while still having time to pursue other interests. 

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 success in the future via the pursuit of excellence in the sport of rowing. Over the last ten years our junior rowing program has developed into an alternative to the large programs by being more accommodating of the academic demands and pressures on today’s teenagers and by offering more individualized attention. It is widely held that the best way to learn how to row is through sculling. Sculling is less stressful to a young person’s still developing body and the nuances involved with moving and balancing a small boat greatly enhance one's efficiency when rowing any type of boat. Rowers leaving CYC are prepared to row in any seat of any boat, sweep or scull.
