Summer Youth Experienced Rowing

May 15 - July 20, 2019

CPRA offers opportunities for youth ages 12-18 years to learn about the sport of rowing. Most youth participants are local (Northumberland, Snyder, Union, Columbia, Montour, Lycoming counties), however everyone is welcome! If you would like make the drive, we would love to have you!

The summer youth program will consist of a ten-week rowing program for youth with previous rowing experience who will be preparing for competition at a regatta. 

For those youth who have already experienced rowing or graduates of the Youth Learn-to-Row, this program will refine your skills and culminate in participation in either a sprint race (summer) and/or a head race (fall) regatta. 


  • Participants will gain coxswain experience.

  • The coach is responsible for decisions on who will compete at regattas and in what boats or seats

  • In order to be eligible to compete at the regatta, participants must attend all practices

  • Rowers competing at the regatta will be responsible for racing uniforms, personal travel expenses (food, travel expenses) and a $150 “Intent to Compete” fee

The 2019 Youth Experienced session will be offered May 15 - July 20, culminating in attending the Philadelphia Youth Regatta July 20.  Schedule is as follows:

  • May 15 - June 8 (4 weeks): 4:45pm - 630pm, Wednesday, Friday & 9am - 11am Saturday

The Youth Experienced program fee is $325 per participant; payment due by first day of summer program. Siblings (after first full pay) receive a $50 discount.

The fee for 2019 LTR participants to join the Youth Experienced program is $200.00; payment due at first practice after LTR ( June 24).

For all participants who intend to compete at the Philadelphia Youth Regatta, there will be an additional $150 “Intent to Compete” fee.

If payment of the program fee is a hardship for your family, CPRA may have some funding to assist youth rowers.
