Summer Competitive Program

Capital Juniors Summer Competitive Program provides DC-area rowers and coxswains with the complete competitive summer racing experience. The program’s goal is to instruct athletes in all aspects of rowing (sweep and sculling) and coxing in order to prepare them for high-stakes racing at the national level.

The Summer Competitive Program is not a recreational rowing camp. It is an intensive seven-week training camp that culminates in participation at regattas. The Summer Competitive Program is ideal for high school rowers and coxswains who are dedicated to improving their rowing or coxing skills and competing at a high level. Incoming 9th graders are welcome to join us.

Rowers and coxswains will receive over 90 hours of coached practice time in which they will refine their rowing and coxing skills. Athletes will train as a group five days each week (Monday, Tuesday, ThursdayFriday, and Saturday), working toward individual and team goals throughout the duration of the camp.

Our staff of highly experienced coaches will promote learning, teamwork, and competitiveness by providing athletes with dedicated instruction, holding athletes accountable to their development goals, and establishing an environment that recognizes teamwork, discipline, and mental toughness.

Please email juniors_rep@capitalrowing.org if you have any questions.

Register for the 2022 Competitive Summer Program

Focus for the 2022 camp will be small-boat rowing to start with the potential to move to bigger boats.  In addition to meeting COVID-19 related requirements, small-boat rowing fine tunes rowing skills that translate immensely into large boats.
