Small Boat Development Centers
USRowing Junior National Team Small Boat Development Centers
The USRowing Junior National Team Small Boat Centers’ main goal is to promote the sport of rowing and develop the youngest level of champions by providing regional centers that promote the Junior National Team (JNT) and open the opportunity of the Junior National Team to more individuals.
The majority of athletes that compete at the Junior World Championships every year have been rowing in the USRowing Junior National Team for more than that summer. The development of these athletes is critical to the continued growth and success we see at the World Championship level. These athletes are also the core of every level above them from collegiate rowing to U23 and Senior National Teams.
We are excited about the growth and impact of our Small Boats Centers on the US Junior National Team program already. This is a unique opportunity for athletes to get introduced to sculling and small boats in a fun and safe environment. The coaching staffs are all accomplished rowers and coaches from elite Youth Coaches to NCAA champions to former US National and Olympic Team athletes. We are proud of the role they are playing in young athletes’ growth in the sport of rowing.
