CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2018 GRADUATES! Bret Bay (Cornell University); Ben Herstein (Rice University); Jasleen Kahlon (UCLA); Zach Stapleton (DSC and new HRA Junior Rowing Assistant!); Mhari Whyte (FSU). Way to go team!!
The HRA Junior Rowing program is open to any/all Middle School or High School student athlete in Volusia County. As rowing is a team sport, junior rowers are expected to attend as many practices as possible.
The Junior Rowing program participates 10 months out of the calendar year and competes at regattas in both the fall season (5000 meter courses, also referred to as Head Races) and spring season (1500 meter courses, referred to as Sprint Races). Junior rowers also compete in the Southern Sprints (indoor rowing) and at the State Rowing Championships each spring (in Sarasota).
Travel costs (hotel, food, etc.) and team gear (uni required at minimum) are additional to the monthly fees.
This year we’re pleased to offer two scholarships to help families with a financial need meet the cost obligations of the rowing program. Click here for the Dee Campbell Junior Rowing Scholarship.
