About this event

Collegiate and post collegiate athletes— Looking to row this summer in a competitive and fun atmosphere and develop your skills and talent? Then the Riverfront Development Team is for you! There is a subset of the team that practices and competes year-round, but the main focus comes in the summer. The purpose of this program is to bring together like-minded young athletes to develop their rowing technique, boat feel and improve fitness and head back to their respective collegiate programs (or stay at Riverfront!) with a better understanding of the rowing stroke. Part of developing yourself as a competitive athlete includes improving your race performance at the Club level. Therefore, racing is an integral component of this Program, and we plan to attend a number of races throughout the summer. Athlete should have a 2k goal around or below 6:30 for HWT men, 6:40 for LWT men, 7:30 for open women and 7:40 for LWT women (ideally performed in the last 6 months) and are training 6 days a week. ALL athletes (even those who may not yet meet all ideal criteria) are welcome to join us. Athletes can expect the first week to be an Observation Week where the coaches and athletes work together to discuss their goals and to ensure the athlete’s goals align with the goals of the Program. Riverfront Racing Tank included with all paid registrations. Race entry fees, travel/food/accommodations are not included in the Program Fee. Practices are held June 1st to August 6th on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Fridays from 5:30-7:30 am (docking around 7:10ish) and on Saturdays from 6:30-8:30 am, at the Riverfront Boathouse in Riverside Park, 20 Leibert Road Hartford. Financial assistance may be available to adult rowers. To inquire, contact Jonathan Near by email at jnear@riverfront.org
