(June 6 – August 10)
Each summer for the last 30 years, athletes from all over the DC area converge at TBC Racing to put together the fastest boats in the country.
Summer rowing is unique in that the events allow for age group definition. At TBC Racing we use this to our advantage to take a large group of rowers, and give each athlete an excellent experience that advances their rowing abilities by years in one summer. The groupings during the summer include U-15 (if we have enough young athletes), U17 & U19. We intend to win at every age group.
Two Options – Your Pick
Once the season gets going, we will give athletes the choice between two “divisions”, entirely based on athlete interest and ability to commit time, not based on athlete athletic performance.
- Competitive Racing: This team will be focused on putting together the fastest boats for competition, and will have training cadences designed for peak performance at major regatta. This group will generally require athletes to be committed to 7-10 practices a week, especially as races approach.
- Developmental Training: This program will train just as rigorously but without the interruption of IDR, US Nationals & Canadian Henley regattas. Everyone will have the opportunity to row at the Philly Youth Regatta (end of July). Athletes will have the opportunity to row in the morning for additional time on the water, but there will not be a requirement to do so. Primary practices for this group will be in the afternoon during the 4-6pm practice time.
