CBC Competitive Juniors Programs

Upcoming Junior Season Fall 2021 Information

(Downloadable version HERE)

The Cambridge Boat Club offers a selective competitive rowing program for high school athletes, focused on sculling and small boat racing. Our plan is to develop highly competitive athletes and boats and to race successfully in several fall head races or scrimmages.

Athletes will be expected to attend all coached sessions, as well as to complete any requested additional training sessions on their own, outside of the CBC setting.

The team is open to athletes who are currently in high school and have one or more years of rowing experience. Experience in sculling is preferred, but not a requirement. Our maximum capacity will be 6 boys and 6 girls.

Athletes will be coached by CBC’s Junior Head Coach Abby Knight. Assistant Coaches will also likely be involved.

Fall Season Program Dates:

  • Tuesday, August 31st – Sunday, November 21st

Tryouts (as necessary, based on program demand):

We will determine the need for tryouts by Friday, August 20th, and will publish the tryout protocol (along with dates/times) by Monday, August 23rd. The tryout would likely consist of a timed piece in a single scull, a timed erg, and potentially also a timed run (flat or stadiums).

Practice Times:

  • Tuesday – Friday: 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm
  • Saturday & Sunday: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
