Three Rivers Junior Rowing
Three Rivers Junior Rowing (TRJr.) promotes the sport of rowing at the junior level throughout Allegheny County. Three Rivers Rowing provides coaching, equipment, administration and helps to establish parent participation. We encourage new members whether they receive support from a school or not. Anyone is welcome! We encourage any 8th-12th grade athlete – no matter their current athletic ability or experience – to experience the sport of rowing. Three Rivers takes a great amount of pride in developing athletes through their entire rowing career, juniors to collegiate to masters.
Rowers from all area schools have the opportunity to practice together, which provides more flexibility in boat selection and enhances a quality rowing experience and rower development.
TRJr. is designed as a competitive rowing team while still having the capability to teach the new rower. Rowers will be grouped together according to skill level and coached accordingly. Rowers will earn seats in racing boats. Priority is to field the fastest boats possible in all categories. Attendance and commitment level is directly related to whether the rower will earn a seat in the boat.
The team consists of two groups. The Novice Team is the group of rowers who are in their first year of rowing. They practice together and race other novice teams. The Varsity Team is made up of rowers who are in at least their second year of rowing. All members are junior high or high school students.
AGES: 8th-12th graders.
