Bainbridge Rowing Winter Training Erg Coppertop Varsity Boys

BIR Juniors – Winter Season 2019-20

The BIR Winter Training Program for Juniors is designed by BIR coaches to build strength and endurance safely during the winter season to prepare our athletes for a competitive Spring season. It is open to all Bainbridge High School (BHS) students in grades 9-12.

Training Program
The Winter Training Program focuses on a combination of CrossFit©, ergometer training, and track conditioning. The specific training regimen varies by team:

  • Varsity girls will do body circuits, which are largely body weight resistance workouts and light weights with high reps to strengthen all aspects of the body at an anaerobic pace.
  • Varsity boys will do an Olympic lifting program: 10 to 12 reps of several different lifts focusing on building muscle strength and endurance.
  • Novice boys and girls will do a modified CrossFit© training program, which will be led by an instructor and coach.

Fees
Rowing fees for the Winter Season are as follows:

  • Varsity: $298
  • Novice: $298

In addition, all rowers must have paid the BIR annual membership fee and the USRowing membership fee.

Fee Payment & Refund Details: See the Juniors Registration page for full information and guidance about how to pay fees each season. BIR does not offer fee refunds for the Winter Training Program due to its brief length.

Scholarships: Scholarships may be available to Junior rowers based on need and funding availability. Visit the Scholarships page for details.
