BIR Juniors – Summer Season 2017

BIR offers multiple summer rowing programs for Junior rowers. Programs vary from year to year but the summer tends to be less formal and a good time to get or stay in shape, improve your form, or just give rowing a try. College students in the area for the summer are also welcome. Prior participation in a regular Learn to Row class is neither required nor recommended for participation in the Junior summer programs. Participation is open to all Kitsap County students.
