Upcoming Programs: 2020 Fall Season

TBC Racing is pleased to announce that we will be offering a hybrid online/in person program for the fall season. Given the uncertainty surrounding the current public health situation, we have designed the fall program to be implemented in three phases. Only one registration is required, but athletes can choose to pay into and participate into each subsequent phase as desired. The initial registration ($200) covers all online activities from Sept 7 - Oct 28, including a training plan, video review of athlete technique, and online team meetings and events, such as technical review sessions, mental skills clinics and college recruiting strategy. The initial registration also covers the first week of on-water practices.   

      Once we have our registration numbers and athlete availability in hand, we will determine how many on-water sessions per week we are able to offer going forward, and will price the second phase accordingly. The cost for the second phase, which will run from Sept 14 - Oct 2, will be between $175 and $400, depending on the number of sessions per athlete that we are able to offer. Assuming that nothing changes in terms of boathouse access or the public health situation, we will offer a third phase from Oct 3 - Oct 28 for the same price. This means that if the program is running on a close-to-normal basis of 5 practices per week, the total cost will be $1000, which is just under the standard cost for the TBC Racing Fall season. If we can offer less time on-water, the cost will drop accordingly. 

      We also understand that some parents and athletes are not willing to take part in an outdoor activity at this point. It is completely acceptable for athletes to simply purchase the online part of the program and not take part in the on-water sessions.

TBC Racing

TBC Racing is a highly competitive summer and fall club program which trains out of the Thompson Boat Center in Washington, DC. Our summer program begins in early June, and runs through early August, with races at USRowing Club Nationals and the Canadian Henley. The program is intensive, averaging 9 practices per week after the end of school, and is dedicated to high performance in both the technical and fitness aspects of the sport. This attitude is reflected in our results - in the last 5 years, the men's and women's teams have both earned national championships at Club Nationals (along with a number of silver and bronze medals). As a measure of individual success, our athletes are regularly represented in the All-Met awards (6 of the 9 men and 5 of the 9 women in 2015), and alumni of the junior program row for the top schools in the country .

Training at TBC takes advatange of the time offered by the summer season. Our athletes row and race a variety of hull types, including pairs, fours and eights, and we are able to take the time to teach technique on a very detailed level. Our coaches are drawn from some of the best in the area, with an intense love of the sport, and a long track record of successful teams. The program is open to all athletes who have participated in at least one season of competitive rowing - Freshmen and Sophomores (high school) usually row with our 16 and under squad, while Juniors and Seniors row with the 18 and under group.

If you love rowing, want to challenge yourself, develop your skills, and compete at the national level, join us this summer on the Potomac!
