HIGH SCHOOL ROWING
Nereid’s High School rowing program is a competitive team program that is open to all high school athletes who have either completed a Learn-to-Row program, taken private lessons, or rowed previously elsewhere or with Nereid’s Middle School program. New high school rowers who are interested in trying the sport should visit our Youth Learn-to-Row page to learn more about getting started.
The High School program practices year-round, however, rowers can sign up for each season separately. Rowers in the High School program can also choose to either train 4-days per week or 6-days per week. You can learn more about each season’s program and register below:
The 2019 Summer season will begin on June 10th for High School rowers and will end on August 3rd, except for rowers who are competing at the Canadian Henley Regatta.
Additionally, we understand that not all interested athletes will be able to participate for the entire 8 weeks of the summer program. Therefore, participation for the entire season is not required, and rowers have two additional registration options for the summer program:
- Full Summer: Rowers who will participate in more than 4 of the 8-week summer program should register for the Full Summer option
- Partial Summer: Rowers who will participate in 4 or less weeks of the 8-week summer program should register for the Partial Summer option
The 2019 Fall season will begin on September 3rd for High School rowers and will end on November 23rd. We offer the following options for the Fall season:
- High School 6-day: This program is open to rowers with at least one season of prior rowing experience. Practice will be from 4 – 6 PM Mondays – Fridays, and 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM on Saturdays.
- High School 4-day: This program is open to both experienced and novice rowers and meets Tuesday – Thursdays, plus Saturdays. Practice times are 4 – 6 PM Tuesdays – Thursdays, and 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM on Saturdays.
This program is open to rowers with at least one season of prior rowing experience and meets Tuesday – Thursdays, plus Saturdays. On Wednesdays and Thursdays practice will be split into two different sessions. The first practice session will be from 4 – 5:30 PM and will be for the top 14 rowers on the team, and the second session will be from 5:30 – 7 PM and will be for the remaining rowers on the team. On Tuesdays and Saturdays the team will practice together as a whole. Practice will be from 4 – 6 PM on Tuesdays, and 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM on Saturdays. Optional practices will be held on Mondays and Fridays from 4 – 5:30 PM.
One day per week of training at FASST (http://www.fasstnj.com/) will be included for each rower, and each rower can choose to train at FASST a second day per week for an additional $150 (paid to FASST). Training at FASST will be held from 6 – 7 PM on Tuesdays and 10 – 11 AM on Saturdays.
Nereid’s High School rowing program is a competitive program with opportunities to race throughout the season. As such, a certain level of commitment is expected from each athlete. Specific expectations will be discussed at the start of the season. For further questions please contact Dylan Gould at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Rutherford Residents receive a 50% discount until participation reaches 25% of the program size, after which the discount is pro-rated across all Rutherford participants. We ask all participants to pay the full program amount, and then we will issue a refund to Rutherford Residents once the final numbers are known. At current participation levels we expect that refund level to be 50%.*
Space is limited and therefore acceptance is not guaranteed and is determined based on seniority, as well as on a first come, first served basis. Nereid reserves the right to modify the program schedule as circumstances change. Should an athlete drop out of a program, no refund will be provided.
