Events, features and things to do for families in New Hampshire
KC Lumbard started rowing at the Independence Rowing Club when she was in eighth grade and has been involved in the sport ever since. When she was given the opportunity to coach the youth programs at IRC after graduating from the University of San Diego last year, she was thrilled. Lumbard believes that for many kids rowing is just a fun sport to be involved in during high school while others use it to obtain college scholarships and may even have dreams of going to the Olympics. “Rowing can provide wonderful opportunities for personal growth, and I know a lot of people whose lives were changed for the better because they started rowing.” Lumbard said.
The IDC is providing student summer programs comprised of four, two-week sessions, each of which costs $100. Students can sign up for as many sessions as they would like. The club set up the multiple sessions to accommodate those who are not sure they want to commit, as well as people who will be going on vacation.
The high school program meets Monday to Friday from 7 to 9 a.m.; the middle school program meets from 9 to 11 a.m. If there is enough interest, an afternoon program will be formed as well, meeting from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The session dates are:
Session 1: June 25 – July 6
Session 2: July 9 – July 20
Session 3: July 30 – Aug. 10
Session 4: Aug. 13 – Aug. 24
