Junior Rowing Program

Our junior program has two teams, open to grades 7 to 12: Varsity and Junior Varsity. Both teams are designed to help athletes improve in all aspects of fitness, mental toughness, discipline, and team building. Unlike many sports, you can start rowing at any age and be successful. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. All rowers must pass a swim test.

In addition to on-water rowing technique, these rowers are taught boat handling, safety on the water, and erg technique on the rowing machine. Rowers are coached by experienced coaches who make learning to row easy and fun. Most years we have 1-2 graduating seniors go on to continue rowing in college.

To join the Varsity Team, rowers must be dedicated and have a desire to excel on the water. Advancing from Junior Varsity to the Varsity team is a decision made by the athlete, parents, and coaches.

Varsity and Junior Varsity are organized by seasons, a rower may join at the start of any season:

  • Spring: April – May Only season rowers may letter in the sport. Must attend both regattas.
  • Summer: June – mid August
  • Fall: September – October
  • Winter: January-March Open to any athletes looking to cross train and improve their general strength and fitness. Non-rower participants are encouraged.
