The Youth Competition team is for novice and experienced rowers who are interested in traveling and competing at serious level. We travel at least once per season. If you do well in the spring at our regional championship, you can even qualify for Youth Nationals. Utah Crew has qualified boats for Youth Nationals the past two years in a row. Our next Competition season starts in late August and registration will open in July. Check back here for registration details.
Novice rowers race their first year against rowers from other team who also have one year or less of rowing experience. So even if you have never sat in a boat, you can join this team and compete against rowers at similar levels.
Rowing has two main competitive season, fall and spring. In the fall, we race in what are called "head races." These are 5km time trials. Every fall, we compete at Wasatch Mountain Head in Park City and then we travel to a regatta, typically in Seattle or San Diego. In the spring, we race locally at the Brine Shrimp Sprints and then travel to the Mountain West Regional Championships in Colorado. Varsity crews that win there qualify for Youth Nationals.
