NOVICE JUNIOR RACING OVERVIEW
The Newport Sea Base Rowing Novice Team is a competitive youth program for athletes that do not have any prior rowing experience. It is our introductory competitive rowing program for athletes from 8-12th grade regardless of prior rowing experience. You will be taught how to row upon joining the team if you do not have experience. The program is designed to prepare athletes to successfully train and race on the NSBR Under-17 and Under-19 Competitive Youth Team.
While our Junior Racing programs are competitive in nature, we strive to create a positive atmosphere for all athletes. We believe that through a good development process and a supportive team environment, athletes of all abilities who put in the work, can be successful in the sport. This program is designed to introduce young athletes to all aspects of rowing. Focus is on technique as well as improving fitness. In addition to spending time in rowing shells, athletes will do a lot of land training (erging, running and calisthenics) to help improve fitness and technique for on the water training.
Participation in one of our summer learn-to-row camps is recommended but not required.
All participants must register through our online marketplace, submitting initial required documents including the medical forms and the parental release form.
