Colorado Junior Crew operates year-round from our home in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. We offer Fall, Winter, Spring Break, Spring and Summer rowing opportunities to athletes aged 13-18. We welcome rowers of all abilities, currently from 20 different middle and high schools. We cater to athletes with zero experience in the sport, right through to competitive athletes aiming to gain qualification spots at Youth Nationals or be recruited at the Collegiate level. Current team athletes include Youth Regional and US National Championship medalists. CJC has multiple Alumni who have continued their rowing careers post high school and are now rowing in Club, IRA and NCAA programs. CJC Alumni also includes NCAA National Champions.
So whether you're an experienced rower or you want to try the sport for the first time, you've come to the right place!
CJC and COVID-19
COVID-19 VACCINATION REQUIREMENT
All CJC staff and athletes must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate. Proof of vaccination must be sent to CJC prior the first day of practice. Adherence to local and CDC mandates and guidelines is mandatory.
CJC is requiring that athletes wear masks off the water. This means from the moment you get out of your car to when you are on the water. (05 Sept 2021)
Policies covering daily practice and team travel are being developed and will be forwarded to athletes and families. Adherence to local and CDC mandates and guidelines is mandatory. As local and CDC guidelines continue to change, CJC policy can be expected to evolve as needed.

We at CJC are mindful that this is a challenging time for everyone in our community. There has never been a more important time to offer our youth a place to exercise, commune with friends, set and reach goals, and maintain a healthy and productive mindset. We believe that our team is an important part of helping us all manage these challenging times.
