Youth recreational rowing programs are for youth aged 12-18 looking to row on the Charles River. We offer a fun and inclusive experience, beginning with our Learn to Row program, an introductory noncompetitive class in which participants have an opportunity to try rowing in a fun and safe environment. They will learn the basics of the sport, starting in our training barges and graduating into eight-person rowing shells as their skills develop. Rowers take turns in the coxswain seat to help their classmates navigate the river safely. Once rowers complete Learn to Row, they can continue recreational rowing in Youth Crew League or Summer Skills Development clinics, or they can give competitive rowing a try in our Novice Competitive programs.

Welcome to 2018 Winter Training - 


There are opportunities for both recreational and competitive youth athletes to row at CRI this winter.  For those who'd like to know more about the sport of rowing, for those who have questions, and for those who want to know "what are the next steps?" for my young athlete, please feel free to contact one of our head coaches:


GIRLS:  Skye Elliot, Girls Head Coach;  Brent Bode, Girls Novice Coach

BOYS:  Will Congram, Boys Head Coach;  Sean Crowley, Boys Novice Coach
