Fall Junior Racing Program - 2019
For Upper Valley high school rowers with 1 or more spring seasons of racing experience and a commitment to training for two head races (endurance distances from 4-6km). Seats are limited so sign up well in advance (we will maintain a wait list).
Attendance at all practices and races is expected. We will attend 2 away races: CRI Fall Classic on Sept 21 and NH Championships on Oct 13.
UVRF Junior membership is required. 2019 Leb Crew and 2019 Summer Junior Scullers are already UVRF members (no need to register for Fall Only membership)!
For non-members, there is a discounted FALL ONLY Junior membership fee of $25. If you register for this FALL ONLY membership you may row for the fall season only (no summer sculling).
Calling all coxswains! Membership AND program fees are waived for committed coxswains who want to get valuable head racing experience. Head races are sometimes called "coxswain's races" because of the critical role of good steering and focused leadership over long distances. Email Erika if you are interested in coxing.
