Junior Rowing

The CYC Junior Rowing program is open to boys and girls ages 13 - 18.
CYC 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. The CYC junior rowing program offers significant benefits. 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.

SUMMER ROWING FOR JUNIORS AT CYC 2017
CYC offers a variety of summer programs for junior age (13 - 17) boys and girls.
CYC membership is not required to enroll.
We have programs suited for all juniors with an interest in rowing from those trying the sport for the first time to those training for national competitions.

SUMMER LEARN TO ROW PROGRAM
Group lessons have proved to be an inefficient method for teaching beginners how to row.
Some participants catch on quickly while others take longer, frustrating those at both ends of the spectrum.
Because of this, we offer private and semi-private lessons which allow each participant to progress at their own pace.
Once a Learn To Row participant reaches a certain level of proficiency they may join our Recreational Summer Rowing program.
Most Learn To Row participants progress to the point of being able to join the Recreational Rowing Program after 3 private lessons.
Our Learn To Row program offers private and semi-private lessons on a per lesson basis or in three-lesson packages.
Lessons last approximately 2 hours.
Schedule:
            June 19 - August 25 (10 weeks)
            Monday through Friday, 10:00 am – 12 noon

            Other days and times subject to availability of instructor
Fees:
            3 private lesson package / $240
            Individual private lessons / $90
