Summer 2021 Junior Racing Team
The Pegasus Rowing, Summer Racing Team Season runs from 6/21 to 8/8.
The summer race schedule includes several Philadelphia and New Jersey area competitions (schedule below). Any Royal Canadian Henley Travel Team will be determined in July and all expenses related to that competition are independent of the Summer fee. Canadian Henley travel costs will be outlined prior to naming the team.
As many of our rowers hold summer jobs, morning practices will be held from 5:30-7:00AM Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Afternoon practices will be run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-7:30PM. Saturday practices will be run 6-8AM.
The cost of all US regatta entries is included with the summer program $975 fee. Upper Merion residents are eligible for a reduced rate. Candidates for the reduced rate should contact Head Coach, Franck Kiser, directly for details. No financial accommodation is available to rowers who miss training days or weeks due to vacations, travel, or work commitments.
The team size will be limited to 30 rowers. The first 15 rowers will secure their spot based on a first paid first secured approach. After the first 15 rowers are registered, candidates will be prioritized according to 2K, 6K provided scores, or if novices, a recommendation from LTR instructor.
To secure a spot on the team please make checks out to Pegasus Rowing and forward to the following address.
