Novice Rowing (Fall 2018)

Regular price $530.00 Sale

The Jr Novice Program is the introduction to the competitive world of rowing. During the fall season, Novice athletes will practice 3 days a week, where they will learn the basic fundamentals of rowing, along with the proper form and technique behind the stroke. In addition to that, these athletes will also learn the ins and outs of racing within the world of rowing. Novice athletes will have the opportunity to compete in 3-4 races throughout the fall racing season.

We are excited to offer 2 different payment options this year, paying in full and paying in 3 payments. Athletes and their families who pay in full will receive a discount. The extra cost associated with the payment plan is due to transaction fees using Shopify. If you are opting for the payment plan option, please select the appropriate option on the drop down box. From there, you will be taken to the shopping cart and given the option to check out. You will see a blue rectangle that says "Pay with". Select that option, and you will be taken to the page to set the payment plan up. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about this!
