Novice Program


 

ltr


The Capital Juniors Novice program seeks to introduce the sport of rowing to a new population of high school athletes. Rowers will train on indoor rowing machines, on rowing barges, and in racing shells. As the rowers progress, they will enter into competitive races. 

 

Absolutely no experience is required. Everyone is welcome to come and participate!

 

Rowers will learn every aspect of sweep rowing, including:

  • Basics of the rowing stroke and body mechanics
  • Fundamental boat topics such as set, run, ratio, and timing
  • Blade (oar) technique
  • Rowing terminology
  • Use of rowing machines (ergometers)
  • Introduction to training and racing
  • Boat safety
  • Equipment terminology and care

A typical practice might consist of the following activities:

  • A light jog and stretching
  • Land coaching via demonstrations on the ergometers (ergs)
  • Light erg sessions to practice technique and body mechanics
  • Rowing on the water using a training barge or in 8-person or 4-person rowing shells

About Capital Juniors


Capital Juniors was created by Capital Rowing Club in the Fall of 2010 to bring rowing opportunities to the diverse community of the Anacostia River and the larger Washington, DC area. Within Washington, DC, only one public high school, Woodrow Wilson, offers rowing as an extracurricular activity. This makes rowing virtually inaccessible to youth in other parts of the city. Rowing is a multidimensional sport that teaches discipline, camaraderie, fitness, work ethic, and teamwork and provides a path for students to enter college. Capital Juniors seeks to provide an opportunity for more high school students to realize these benefits.


Capital Juniors consists of both novice and competitive teams. Novice rowers must be in enrolled in 9th-12th grade (or be over the age of 13) and do not need to have any previous rowing experience.  Competitive rowers should also be of high school age and should have at least one year of rowing experience to be considered for the team.
