Youth Rowing

CMI’s youth summer program is open to students entering 7th grade and up. The season runs June 22 – August 13.

We’re also offering opportunities for new rowers to try rowing in morning and afternoon sessions, Monday – Thursday, the week of July 13th and August 10th. No experience required! For all the details, click the link above!

CMI welcomes back a phenomenal coaching staff of experienced rowers led by Program Directer Abi Kornet and perennial director of our youth rowing programs, John Liffmann.

Mark your calendars! On September 13, 2015, CMI is hosting the Minot Light Roundabout. As those of you at last year’s race may recall, it was a true open water event, raced in challenging 3-4 foot seas. CMI plans to work with US Rowing to make the Minot Light Roundabout an event officially sponsored by US Rowing / Coastal Rowing. This trial event will help CMI and other rowing clubs to determine how best to work with US Rowing to align with international standards for races established by World Rowing.

Interested in racing this year? CMI‘s Racing & Events Committee has published the 2015 CMI Race Calendar. Contact Mike Novak to learn more!

CMI is the proud owner of six new Concept 2 Indoor Rowers!  Our youth rowers can already attest to the smooth action of the new equipment.  The Adult program will use these for training, instruction and during inclement weather.Next Steps:  It’s a great idea to warm up on the erg for 5-10 minutes before you go on the water during rowing season.
