This program is for those who wish to learn the basics of both types of rowing in team boats while working on conditioning and core strength training. Typically three types of athletes participate in this program:
Middle or high school athletes interested in learning how to row and participate in a non-competitive atmosphere.
Middle school athletes who love the sport and anxiously look forward to joining the middle school competitive or developmental team when they are age-eligible and deemed ready by coaches.
High school athletes who love the sport but cannot meet the attendance requirement for the novice and varsity squads.
By improving fitness and flexibility, this introduction is a great foundation for those interested in competitive crew in the future or in simply achieving and maintaining a higher level of athleticism.
Rowers practice Saturday 10:30am -12:30am.
