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!

How does one keep cool at barren reservoirs and river sides? With a portable shade structure, of course!
Our very own Pete Bacus, who is working on becoming an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, designed and constructed a shade structure that attaches to the trailer. It took more than a year's effort and 94 hours of volunteer time, but Pete was able to install the finished project this week. You may read more about the process and view more photos in the link below the photo. Both CJC and Boulder Community Rowing will use this shade--many thanks to Pete for this awesome service project!
