Juniors Rowing Calendar

Spring Session – Early March
Summer Session – Begins Mid-June.  Competitive and novice crews available.  
Fall Session – Tryouts Begin Mid-August
Winter Session – Begins December

The Juniors Rowing Program seeks to bring competitive high school rowing and a love of the sport to athletes in the Greater Louisville Area.  Beginning in the Novice crew, high school students learn the basic mechanics and technique of rowing from our seasoned coaching staff. The Varsity crew expands on these skills with a greater focus on the spring sprint racing season. The Juniors program is divided into Men’s Varsity and Novice, and Women’s Varsity and Novice crews.

The program is open to aspiring and returning rowers from any school in the county, and features practices four days per week, several weekend regattas, and the opportunity to continue rowing between the major Spring and Fall sessions with Winter and Summer training. 

Founded in 1995, the LRC Juniors Program operated for many years in a school-focused model, with a number of different teams sourcing athletes from one or another school.  In 2011 the program moved to a community model, similar to many high school programs in the northeast.
Novice rowing will resume during the Summer and Fall rowing sessions. 

Collegiate High School Rowing – LCS operates its own women’s rowing program under the Louisville Rowing Club umbrella.  This crew rows out of the Harrods Creek boathouse, and are coached by veteran LRC oarsman Sandy Taft.
