The Resilient Rowing Summer Racing Program will be comprised of U17 and U19 rowers and coxswains who are ready to take their rowing to the next level. Athletes at this level should be looking to not only improve their fundamental rowing skills but also looking to represent the Occoquan at the local, National, and International level. Members of this Group will train in both sweep and sculling boats with the goal of racing in multiple boat classes at each sprint regatta attended.

​​​​​

Registration for the Summer Racing Program will be open for all athletes interested in racing this summer. All athletes will be evaluated by at least two coaches based on a variety of factors including: 2K score, power to weight ratio, 10 stroke & 1 minute watt tests, overall fitness, technical aptitude, and boat moving ability during the Program Placement Period. Following the Program Placement Period athletes will be notified which program and regattas they'll be attending.

 

High-Performance regattas will be available to a maximum of 32 rowers (16 boys & 16 girls) and up to 4 coxswains.  The two High Performance regattas are the USRowing Club National Championships and the 137th Royal Canadian Henley.

 

Any rower or coxswain not selected to compete at the High Performance regattas will compete at Summer Racing regattas which will be available to a maximum of 48 rowers (24 boys & 24 girls) and coxswains. The three Summer Racing regattas are, Occoquan Memorial Sprints, Capital Sprints, and the Philadelphia Youth Regatta.
