Junior Rowing

Rowing is an excellent sport for young people looking for both an athletic challenge and a great team experience. Nereid has a year-round juniors program that caters to both first-time and experienced rowers.

Our team of skilled coaches will work with athletes both on and off the water to develop a thorough understanding of the sport. Rowers are immersed in technique, physical training, and race preparation, as well as the basics of maintaining boats and equipment. Rowers in all programs may participate in multiple regattas per season, at the coaches’ discretion.

To enroll in a Nereid program, use the online checkout tool down below. A swim test is also required for all seasons but Winter; please see the sidebar on the right side of this page for a link with more information on the swim test. Completed forms may also be emailed to programs@nereidbc.org

Space is limited and is not confirmed until a payment is received. Acceptance is also 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. 

Winter Programs

Pre-Spring Indoor Learn-to-Row

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. Our Pre-Spring Learn-to-Row programs are perfect for youth athletes who are interested in rowing for the first time during the spring and are looking to get a jumpstart on things. These programs are indoors and focus on teaching athletes proper rowing technique on an indoor rowing machine. Athletes will receive hands-on coaching, video sessions, and learn the basics of rowing equipment and terminology. These programs will meet on the weekends listed below, from 5:30 - 7 PM on Fridays and 1:30 - 3 PM on Saturdays and Sundays: 

  • Friday, February 1st - Sunday, February 3rd
  • Friday, February 8th - Sunday, February 10th

You can sign up for as many weekend's as you like! The fee structure for these programs is as follows:
  • One Weekend: $150
  • Two Weekends: $275
  • Three Weekends: $375
  • All Four Weekends: $450
If you have to miss a day for any of the weekends that you sign up for, then you are welcome to make up that day on another weekend! However, you must give us notice about any missed days and make-up days in advance. 
 
To register for these programs, please use our online registration tool (below), or email our Head Coach (Dylan Gould) at headcoach@nereidbc.org and our Programs Director (Sarah Kornblum) at programs@nereidbc.org. A signed USRowing waiver (click here) will also be required on your first day. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions!

 

*A Learn to row program will only be run if enough rowers register for it. Therefore, advanced registration is required. No walk-ins. 

Competive Winter Training

The 2018 Junior Winter season will begin the week of November 26th and run until the last weekend of February. 

  • High School*: 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 split into two different sessions. The first practice session will be from 4 - 5:30 PM and will be for the top 12 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 Tuesdays, and 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM on Saturdays. Optional practices will be held on Mondays and Fridays from 4 - 5:30 PM. 
  • Middle School: This program is open to both experienced and novice rowers and meets Mondays and Fridays from 5:30 – 7:00 PM. The goals of this program are to prepare rowers physically and technically for the spring season.

All of Nereid’s Junior programs are competive programs 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 headcoach@nereidbc.org.

*Select High School rowers will have the opportunity to train at FASST (http://www.fasstnj.com/) once a week. These rowers will also have the option of training at FASST a second day of the week for an additional $150. We have 20 spots for training at FASST and those spots will be determined by seniority as well as level of competitiveness. Training at FASST will be on Tuesdays from 6 - 7 PM and Saturdays from 10 - 11 AM. 

**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 around 40%.
