Junior Fall Competitive Program: We have adjusted the start date of our Junior Fall Competitive Program to begin on August 23rd to ensure that our juniors are trained and ready for the fall racing schedule. When we first prepared the fall schedule we weren’t sure what the summer and fall would look like and we also were working with a delayed opening of our boathouse. If you are interested in signing up for the program, please sign up on Regatta Central. Registration closes soon!

“The CHARGERS Corporate Program gave everyone a chance to come together as a team, no matter where they are in the corporate structure. For anyone who thinks rowing is easy – think again – it is one of the best workouts, and a lot more fun than running on a treadmill!” Jill Russo (Senior Designer/Graphics Coordinator)
