Winter Training Trip

This year our winter training trips takes us to Sarasota Florida!
A much anticipated event on our calendar is the CIR annual Winter Training Trip to Florida. The entire team will spend a week in February training 2 times per day on the Nathan Benderson Park course - one of the premier race venues in the world and host to the next 3 years USRowing Youth National Championships. The team will also be participating in the America Youth Cup regatta on the course, how great to be racing in February!

Trip dates are 2/14 through 2/20. 

The experience provides a welcome break from the cabin fever and cold temperatures of Winter in the Nort East, and the quality mileage that we will get in will likely eclipse all the rowing we can get completed in March back home. Warm, calm water, palm trees, excursions to Siesta Key Beach and Busch Gardens add up to a spectacular week.

One of the great benefits of the trip is the team bonding that occurs with the athletes living together for an extended period of time, taking it in turn to help prepare meals and spending down time truly getting to know each other... its a huge part of why CIR is more of a family than a team !

We will have two parent chaperones with us on the trip, as well as Coach Abi to help out with coaching and keeping the athletes fit on land!
