Juniors Fall Season 2023

Season Overview

The Juniors team at CBRC is built around the core values of teamwork, sportsmanship, hard work, and accountability. At the heart of our program is the singular goal to give youth in the Greater Tacoma area the very best opportunities to not only excel at an athletic endeavor, but to grow into healthy, capable adults and citizens.

The Juniors team at CBRC is open to a wide breadth of ages: anyone who previously qualified as a novice, rising 8th graders, and youth up to and including seniors in high school. Interested young athletes have until October 30, 2023 to register for Fall Rowing.

Novice and Varsity Programs

Our program is split into two categories: 

1. Novice: Your first competitive year of rowing is considered your novice season. If you have just completed a Summer Learn to Row or are trying the sport for the first time this is your time to learn the ins-and-outs of the sport. Novice seasons are fun and where many people begin to strengthen relationships with their teammates!

2. Varsity: This is where the competition really gets ramped up. Expectations are higher, attendance becomes even more crucial, and the races become a lot tighter. While there is always an element of learning, your varsity seasons are where that learning really starts to pay off.
