Fall Junior Racing Program - 2021


For Upper Valley high school rowers with 1 or more spring seasons of racing experience and a commitment to training for two head races (endurance distances from 4-6km, roughly 15-25 minutes). Seats are limited so sign up well in advance (we will maintain a wait list).

Bonus Sculling Option - New for Fall 2021, we will offer a Sculling-only add-on for Fall Junior Racing Program registrants only. No prior Sculling experience necessary. Attendance at the Sculling-only day is optional, but no refunds will be provided for missed sessions. Tuesdays, September 14 - October 12 (5 weeks). Cost: $75

You must be at least 14 years old and younger than 20 to register as a Junior. You must be fully vaccinated (two weeks out from final shot whether 1- or 2-shot protocol) by September 7th in order to participate in this program per UVRF rules. Proof of vaccination will be required prior to the first practice. You may upload a scan of your vaccination card confidentially by email to   or email the same address to request alternative options for verification. Vaccine verification can not happen at practice.

Attendance at all practices and races is expected. We will attend 2 away races: CRI Fall Classic on Sept 18 and NH Championships on Oct 17.

UVRF Junior membership is required. 2021 Leb Crew and 2021 Summer Junior Scullers are already UVRF members (no need to register for Fall Only membership).

For non-members, there is a discounted FALL ONLY Junior membership fee of $25. If you register for this FALL ONLY membership you may row for the fall season only (no summer sculling).
