Middle School and High School
(entering 6th grade and up)
During Spring (Apr-Jun) and Fall (Sept – Nov)
The Development Team is our non-competitive rowing program. Emphasis is on rowing technique, boat handling, physical conditioning, teamwork and fun as well as preparation for the High School Racing Team. Some on-water rowing experience is required.
Want to Learn to Row? We offer Beginner/Learn-to-row programs for Middle School and High School students. Scroll down for more information.
You learn basic rowing skills on land and water. You spend the season improving your skill and fitness. With a coaches permission, and if you ready for it, you could transition onto the Development-Experienced Team (extra fees may apply) or even the Racing Team when you have the skill and are ready to make the commitment to the extra training.
Come join us on the beautiful Norwalk River!
New! Spring 2023, we are also offering a 4 week Intro to Rowing class for Middle School students who tried out the rowing machine (erg) at school and want to learn more. Primarily an indoor program, you will learn rowing technique on the erg that will translate to rowing on the water when you are ready for the next step. (Note: the Intro to Rowing class is not required in order to sign up for the Beginner/Learn-to-row program.)
Intro to Rowing Training will be at our indoor facility:
WEPCO Wilton Episcopal Presbyterian Church, 48 New Canaan Road, Wilton, CT
