Fall Season: Rowers on the US Team are expected to attend the practices as scheduled. Fall is usually 4-5 days per week at the Hein's Rowing Center in Conshohocken. We participate in the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta, Navy Day Regatta, which are both in Philadelphia, and are looking to get a bid in the future to race in the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston. Races in the fall are 5,000 meters long. 

Winter Season: Rowers on the US Team are expected to attend the practices as scheduled in the winter. Winter practices are Tuesday- Friday and every other Saturday morning in North Campus. Winter prepares the rowers cardiovascularly for the Spring season. We work on fitness on the ergometer, running, through body circuits, as well as with our personal Strength and Conditioning coach, located in Bryn Mawr, only a few miles from Notre Dame. This is also a great option for those spring athletes that are looking to improve their overall cardio base for their respective spring sport. 

Spring Season: Spring season is the "Championship Season". This is the more demanding of the seasons and shows the culmination of the work that the rowers have put in over the last two seasons. We practice Tuesday- Friday and Saturday mornings all season, and spring break is mandatory for all participants, as there are races over the break. We participate in all 5 Philly Flick Regattas, City Championships, Mid Atlantics (this is dependent on qualification status), and potentially the Scholastic Youth Rowing Nationals as well as hopefully the US Rowing Youth Nationals (both are dependent on qualification status). We are looking to add scrimmages, as well as other small races into the schedule in the future.
