“Rowing is a sport for dreamers. As long as you put in the work, you can own the dream. When the work stops, the dream disappears.” – Jim Dietz

Middle & High School Rowing

The HRA Junior Rowing program is open to any Middle School or High School student athlete in Volusia or Flagler 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).  To see the full Junior Rowing race schedule please click here.

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.

Think you may like to give rowing a try? We are opening up the boathouse to potential new teammates …

If you are interested in participating in the Middle School introductory program, please email us so we can send you more information! Or show up at the Boathouse (parents – paperwork is available at the Boathouse and must be completed prior to participation. Never leave your child at the boathouse until a coach is onsite).
