With the last day of Fall Rowing complete, we are getting ready for winter training! TJ Rowers are a part of many winter sports such as swimming and wrestling, and we encourage our athletes to explore diverse interests which still gets them ready for the Spring season. For rowers not involved in other sports, we offer Winter Training.

Winter Training will start on Thursday, November 16.  Winter Training is offered five days per week, starting right after school until the late buses leave at 6:30 PM. 

Unlike our Spring Season, attendance at Winter Training is not mandatory. With that said, dedication and consistency at Winter Training will lead to faster erg times which has a major factor in the selection of a rower for a top boat. Fast boats are made during Winter Training.
