Learn-to-Row Summer 2022

SJRC's Learn-to-Row program is an introduction to the sport of rowing for rising 6th grade through high school students (coed) with no prior experience.  Each session is one week long and students will learn boat safety, equipment education, land and water training.  Athletes will be rowing on the water for the majority of the session out of the Camden County Boathouse on the Cooper River, 7050 North Park Drive, Pennsauken, N.J. 08109.  If necessary, practices will move indoors during inclement weather at 7905 Browning Road, Suite 202, Pennsauken (across the street from the Boathouse).  

Monday - Thursday (unless noted), 5:00 - 7:00 P.M. 

  • June 20th - 23rd
  • July 5th - 8th (practice July 8th instead of July 4th)
  • August 8th - 11th 
  • September 6th - 9th (practice Sept.9th instead of Sept. 5th)

    Each session is capped at 16 athletes

Cost:  $195.00

Upon completion of a learn-to-row session, new rowers/coxswains may advance to the Novice sessions this summer or join SJRC's upcoming fall program to continue being a part of the team.

Athletes should wear athletic clothes and sneakers (baggy clothes will interfere with equipment).  Athletes must bring a refillable water bottle as disposable bottles are not permitted.

Registration must be completed by a Parent or Guardian.  Only athletes with completed registrations and a verified swim test will be permitted in a boat.

Swim Test:  All athletes must be able to swim, be comfortable around the water and have completed a swim test.  A signed certification from your school or coach, your swim team or proof of the athlete's valid current lifeguard certifications will be accepted (download our form HERE).  Proof of the athlete's completed swim test will need to be uploaded at the time of registration.

Refunds:  There will be no refunds unless a sickness or injury occurs. Refunds must be promptly requested by contacting SJRC via email here. A $50.00 processing fee will be applied.  If a program is cancelled by SJRC, full refunds will be issued.
