Fall

The fall season begins in September and runs through November. It is called the “head race” season as it comprises several longer “head” races that measure roughly 5k in distance.

The fall is our recruiting season. Interested participants can tryout during our annual tryout week. Click here to find the tryout date for the upcoming season or year. 

Tryouts include a week of participation in the program after-school from 4:30-6:30pm, the chance to learn the basics of rowing, some small relays, a friendly chat with a coach, and lots of fun team-building games! Did we mention the pizza party at the end?

 

Winter

The winter training season runs from late November through February. It is an essential element of the year-round program as it is the time most rowers see significant improvement in their physical fitness and competitiveness. They work on goal setting for personal and team fitness metrics and build significant skills in teamwork and leadership.

There will be a second tryout season for the Winter/Spring season the first week of January. This will be the last time rowers will be permitted to join the team this school year. Click here to find out more about tryouts.

Capital Juniors will continue for 2016 its collaboration with District Crossfit as it did for the first time in winter 2015.

Students have access to rowing machines, medicine balls, free weights, bars, pull-up bars, and stationary bikes.

Spring

The spring season starts March 1 and runs through the middle of May. It is the “sprint racing” season that gives Juniors the chance to travel and compete across 1500 meter races against local and regional teams.

Rowers are organized in “line-ups” for each race. It is our goal to have all rowers compete in as many races as possible.
