High School Team

The SJRC High School team is open to high school students (9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade) and runs year-round.  

  • Spring Season:  Begins in mid-December with indoor training and concludes at the end of May (or beginning of June for boats that qualify for Youth Nationals).
  • Summer Season:  We offer various competitive and technical programs mid-June through the beginning of August such as Competitive, Novice (non-racing), Middle School and Learn-to-Row. 
  • Fall Season:  Mid-September through mid-November.  

Program Fees

SJRC program fees include travel to all local, non-overnight regattas/scrimmages.  All race entry fees are covered by the club for each season.  There are additional costs for SJRC athletes who travel to away regattas which vary depending on the distance and are not included in the seasonal program fee structure.  SJRC program fees reflect the costs of purchasing, updating and repairing equipment; boathouse fees; maintaining our indoor facility; insurance; as well as paying our coaches competitively over the course of each season.

         **Additional High School Team Expenses (also applicable to summer U23 race team athletes):  (i) Racing uniform (uni) approximately $80.00.  Optional SJRC apparel will be available at an additional cost but only the racing uni is required.  (ii) Food contributions to stock the food tent/chuck wagon to feed the team during local regattas.  (iii) Travel expenses such as, but not limited to, airfare, ground transportation, accommodations, meals, for away regattas for select crews attending specific regattas such as Youth Nationals (location varies) during the Spring Season; Club/Summer Nationals (location varies) and Canadian Henley (Ontario) during the Summer Season; and the Head of the Charles (Boston) and Head of the Hooch (Chattanooga) during the Fall Season.  [For example only: Additional expenses for Youth Nationals, a 5 day championship regatta in Sarasota, Florida in June 2021 were approx. $900 per athlete.  Additional expenses of $150 per family were asked to be contributed to stock the food tent/chuckwagon for the spring 2022 season.]

Please be aware of season due dates for program payments and installments.  All program fees must be paid prior to participating in any regattas.  Limited financial scholarships may be available to athletes experiencing difficulties paying program fees, please contact us for a scholarship form prior to the start of a season.
