This is the GRRA’s high school program for summer 2015, accepting rowers from any middle/high school in the Grand Rapids area. Rowers should be entering 8th - 12th grade this coming fall. Previous rowing experience is helpful but not necessary.
Athletes will largely use sculling shells (singles, doubles and quads) although sweep shells will be used periodically throughout the season. Racing is not a focus of this program, but those wishing to compete at regattas may be able to do so with coach approval. Regatta fees and associated expenses are not included in the program cost.
Practice days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4:00pm until 6:00pm at the Grand Rapids Boathouse.
Registrations will be accepted on an on-going basis throughout the summer. The fee for the program is $150. Fees can be reduced to $75, with board approval, when the athlete can only attend half or less of scheduled practices. Payment plans are available.
