Choose the program that best fits your needs…..

- Varsity (school year): Previous experience required to be start on the Varsity Racing Team.
- Novice (school year): For the new rower, or rower that has been racing for less than a year. No previous experience required. We love new rowers! We will teach you!
- Winter Programs: We may be off the water but there is still plenty to do. Continue training to keep up fitness and increase strength. Getting ready for the exciting Spring sprint season!
- Summer Programs: Sharpen your skills and your strength over summer. Focus on smaller boats. Summer Races!
Recreational Rowing (High School – age 14+):
For the high school student who wants to be active but does not want to race. Focus is on improving skill and fitness, but with a lower training intensity. 3 days per week.
Development Team (Middle School – ages 12-14):
For the middle school athlete. Lower intensity than Racing team for the athlete that wants to improve their skills, but does not want to compete regionally. A good first step for some who want to “test the waters” before the bigger commitment of the Racing Team. Practices 2 – 3 days per week during school year. Daily in Summer. No experience necessary!
