Junior Competitive Program

Youth Rowing During COVID-19

At the Austin Rowing Club we are committed to continuing strength building and enhancing our technique in the sport of rowing during the pandemic. Our youth programming has changed slightly to accommodate more safety measures and provide each athlete with more attentive and helpful coaching. In addition to our club safety measures, the youth program:

  • Will meet at different times to reduce the number of people at the boat house at once
  • Is going to have various online components as well as socially distanced, in person aspects
  • Will allow for flexible schedules and more individualistic coaching
  • Will have specific training goals that work towards races in the spring and beyond
  • Will have different participation options for each family’s needs
  • Will enforce mask wearing (per City guidelines) while at practice

Austin Rowing Club’s Junior Team was founded in 1989, making it the longest running youth rowing program in Austin. Over the last 30 years, Austin Rowing Club’s competitive junior team has performed at the national level, attended races across the country, sent rowers on to top college programs, and sparked lifelong love of the sport.  ARC’s junior recreational team, provides the same quality coaching as the competitive program for rowers that do not want to make the commitment required to compete with the varsity team. Austin Rowing Club hosts three official USRowing regattas a year. The Head of the Colorado, The Heart of Texas, and the Texas State Rowing Championships.
