The Southeast Junior Rowing Club (SEJ) SEJ in partnership with RowAmerica Knoxville conducts a three–week summer rowing development program for junior level athletes using the campus of Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The SEJ summer development program focuses on increasing racing speed and aspects of the sport necessary to prepare dedicated athletes for competing at the next level.
Baylor School is still renovating their student housing so SEJ will be only female again for 2015. SEJ is limited in dormitory space which limits slots. As a result there will only be 40 female athlete slots and 5 female coxswains available. These slots will be highly competitive and should fill quickly. We apologize and hope to get the men’s program going again in 2016.
SEJ is geared for athletes that are developing towards the requirements of the USRowing junior development system or a college program. Athletes will experience a rigorous and competitive two week training program with up to four 60-minute training sessions per day. Focusing on strength development and technique (blade work, body mechanics, and power application), flexibility, mental training, as well as nutrition to enhance performance on the ergometer as well as the water. SEJ does not cut, therefor all athletes that are accepted and attend the program will travel and compete the final week at the 2015 US Rowing Club Nationals in Cincinnati, Ohio.
