USRowing Youth National Championships

The USRowing-produced regatta features more than 3,500 rowers racing for medals in as many as 43 events. There are 778 entries from 210 clubs across the nation, all of whom qualified for this event from regional youth championships. Those events included the USRowing Southeast Regional Championships, to which NBP played host in May. View the list of entries and clubs. Click here for week of event information!

Summer Festival of Rowing

Hosted by The Bolles School. View event website to register! NO TIME TRIALS - we believe youth rowers need to race in the summer. Too many boats (over HALF at many races!) are going to summer races and are done after they race a 1,900 meter time trial.
