JUNIORS ROWING PROGRAM // FALL 2020 SEMESTER
Our Juniors Program is dedicated to developing young rowers ages 12 to 18 by teaching technique, teamwork, and self-discipline. The TRC after-school program recently reached new heights by winning the Central Youth Championships and two silver medals at the US Youth Rowing Championships! We look forward to continuing to develop our young rowers during the fall 2020 semester. TRC reopened on August 15th and all juniors rowing programs, competitive and recreational, will begin on Monday, August 24th. We will have a parent orientation at 5PM on that date at TRC to provide a program overview.
The tuition cost for the fall 2020 semester is $650. Austin Independent School District students receive a special discounted rate of $595 per semester ($395 per trimester for St. Stephens students).
Juniors Semester Tuition (including St. Stephens) can now be purchased online using credit cards or PayPal. Please include the name of the student in the note section when buying online, and bring your receipt to the club when redeeming your purchase.

Our competitive program challenges those high-school students who want to train to race competitively in regattas. We hone the talents of each individual by improving fitness and developing technical proficiency. Athletes practice and race in sculling singles, doubles, quads, fours and eights. Our goal is to develop team boats capable of competing in regattas and winning state and national championships. Our program has also placed athletes on the U.S. Junior National Team and the 2018 US Youth Olympic Team.
The Recreational Crew is the best option for students who are interested in rowing and paddling, but are not interested in competing. This program is perfect for new rowers and experienced rowers alike from grades 6 to 12. In addition to rowing, students learn to kayak, canoe, and stand-up paddle boards. The goal for crew members is to learn boating techniques and endurance, while experiencing the excitement of the water. Recreational Crew members are invited to participate in local regattas and inter-squad races.

Participants may sign up at any time during the summer.
