High School Summer Conditioning


Newport Rowing Club’s Summer Conditioning program is open to athletes in 9th grade through 12th grade. All athletes must have 1 season minimum of racing experience to participate. All members of the team, regardless of fitness or experience, will practice together.

The Summer Conditioning program at NRC is divided into “Open Gym” days and “On-the-Water” days.

During Open Gym days, athletes will be provided a “menu” of workouts to choose from and are released as soon as they complete their chosen workout. These sessions are supervised and athletes will receive some technical training but are intended as a time for athletes to come into the boathouse and train at their own pace.

On-the-water sessions will be more structured. The athletes will warm up together and take boats out as a group. Athletes will complete a prescribed workout as a group determined by the coaches. These practices will be similar to the structure during the Fall and Spring seasons but a little more relaxed. Participants will have the opportunity to improve on both their sculling and sweep skills.


The Summer Conditioning program may include racing, depending on interest.
