Upcoming Programs: 2020 Summer

Program update: Given the ongoing public health crisis, TBC Racing has made the decision to move our program to an online format until it is safe, legal and prudent to gather athletes together in some format. Registration for these programs is now open; we will begin on Tuesday, May 26.

Our online training will provide workouts (with options for those who have access to ergs and those who do not), twice weekly team Zoom meetings, one-on-one mentorship from coaches, technical videos and advice, coach created content, core workouts, the science of nutrition and hydration, and more. May 26 - June 1 will focus on mental skills, basic technique and team-building. The social and team elements of rowing are a major component of the sport for most athletes, and we are committed to helping fill this gap as much as possible. We intend on having weekly challenges to encourage our team to stay connected, support each other and continue to focus on the team building element of the sport.

The cost for the online portion of the summer will be $175. Once we have additional information about the possibility of on-water practices, we will update the community as to our plans.

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!
