Welcome to PVRC Youth Rowing

Youth Spring Challenge Series 

Pre-requisites: No prior rowing experience required. You must be in grades 8-12.  

ARE YOU READY TO ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE? If so, sign up for Coach Marisa and Coach Jones Youth Spring Challenge Series. You’ll receive a list of weekly workouts and healthy habits provided by the PVRC coaches that you can choose to do on your own and at any time. Workouts will be shared through a google document where dialogue can happen with the coaches. These workouts are a mix of activities such as: bodyweight circuits, aerobic movement, yoga, core circuits and nutritional tips. The benefit of signing up for this package is that you don’t need to come up with workouts. We’ll do all the thinking for you!  Great way to keep the body moving.

In addition to having a weekly training plan, the Spring Squad will meet twice a week on Zoom to gain insight on how to make the boat go fast. Prior to Zoom meetings, coaches will send a video for you to review on one of the following topics: best technique practice on the erg and boat, training tips, recruiting information for college, racing strategies, regattas, sculling tips and tricks, lifting exercises, mobility and so much more. After watching the video, coaches will bring the group together for a Zoom meeting which will allow a Q&A session. This is a great opportunity to slow things down and ask the questions you have always wondered. If you are new to rowing, this will be a great way to accelerate your learning curve. BONUS – Seniors!!!! If interested in leading a Zoom Class or two let us know, free programming for you and a great opportunity to give back to PVRC. If you have any questions in regards to virtual training, please contact Coach Jones by cell at 860-944-6199 or by email at the following address
