Charlotte Youth Rowing is a team that consists of rowers from 8th grade through high school. Those juniors and seniors who are brand new to rowing need special permission from coaches to join the team.
New schedule TBD. Check back soon….
Water Practice: Catawba Yacht Club- 19808 W. Youngblood Road Charlotte, NC 28278
Land Practice ( for inclement weather and winter practices): Hemby Program Center- 4780 Kuykendall Road Charlotte, NC 28270
We participate in regattas that take place all over the south east in locations such as: Clemson, SC, Highpoint, NC, Oak Ridge, TN, Richmond, VA and Sarasota, FL.
Regattas take place approximately twice a month during racing seasons. Head races take place in the fall during the months of September, October, and November. Sprints are in the spring during the months of March, April, and May.
Practices for novice rowers are 5 days a week (M-TH and Saturdays) from 4:30-6:15 on weekdays and 9:00-12:00 on Saturdays.
Practices for varsity rowers are 6 days a week (M-Sat) from 4:30-6:15 on weekdays and 9:00-12:00 on Saturdays.
None! If you come to practice in athletic clothes and with a water bottle we will have all of the shells and oars for you!
Yes! The season fee includes all practices, regattas and travel and hotel costs.
All skill levels are welcome on the team, even if you have never rowed before. A large group of inexperienced rowers participate in the Learn To Row every season. Rowing is a great sport for many reasons, and one of those reasons is you can start at any age!
There will be no refunds during the season if a child chooses not to attend a regatta or decides not to continue to row. As always, for those struggling financially, supplemental support can be received from the Siskey YMCA.
Absolutely! Rowing shells and equipment are not cheap and we welcome donations.
