Middle School (ages 12-14)
Want to Learn to Row? We offer Learn-to-row programs for Middle School students.
You learn basic rowing skills on land and water. Once you get the knack of it, you transition onto the Development-Experienced Team.
The Development Team is a non-competitive rowing program for Middle School students. 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 (see our Learn-to-Row programs below if you are new to the sport).
Come join us on the beautiful Norwalk River!
