Training and Rowing with CBC

CBC athletes train on the Norwalk River at the location we proudly call "The Slab".  Training takes place from September to April.  We are on the water from late August until the fall season ends in November.

We begin training for the spring session indoors at Dynamic Athletics in Darien, the CBC Boathouse in Norwalk, and at the Yale rowing tanks on Sundays.   If you are interested in joining CBC have a look at the current roster of atheletes.  Chances are you attend school with some of them in Fairfield County. They'll tell you what you need to know.   If you have questions, contact Liz Trond by clicking here.
