MRC offers several programs throughout the calendar year:
Learn to Row:
MRC offers a learn to row program for students new to rowing. It is a week long introduction to the sport of rowing and is open to area students entering 7th and 8th grades in the fall. There are two of these week long programs offered in July. You can choose to do one or two weeks of rowing.
This is a two week program held in July. It is open to MHS students in 9th through 11th grade who want to try a different or new sport. This longer program builds upon the basics taught in our Learn to Row program and is appropriate for kids interested in rowing in high school. Your child does not have to have rowed in the Learn to Row program to participate in this program. We welcome all high school students up to 11th grade.
The fall season runs from September through November. Students from Moorestown are welcome to participate. Due to the regattas we row in, the fall season is not limited to just MHS students - if you have a student interested in rowing outside of MHS, please contact a member of the Board directly and we will help guide you. Both new to rowing or returning rowers are eligible to participate in the Fall season. If you are new to rowing we do highly recommend participating in one of the summer camps prior to starting the Fall season, however, it is not a requirement to participate in the Fall.
The spring season is the primary program offered through MRC. The season runs from December through the end of May and perhaps into June if your athlete is fortunate enough to qualify for USRowing Youth Nationals - Something that has happened but is not common. Students from Moorestown High School, whether new to rowing or returning rowers, are eligible to participate in the season. Indoor training begins in December in the Erg Room with the move to the river when weather allows (typically March). Non-medal races and medal regattas (races) begin in mid-March.
