The goal of the Middle School rowing program is to teach the athletes the fundamentals of the sport like discipline, work ethic and how to have fun in a competitive environment! This is a non-racing team, so athletes will take their time to learn the ins and outs of the wonderful sport of rowing.
Athletes will do land training (erg, circuit, video, yoga etc.) to get familiar with all aspects of the sport. They will learn how to care for the equipment and the boathouse, as well as get to know their teammates.
Athletes that show a knack or enthusiasm for the sport may be asked to tryout for the Novice racing team if in 8th grade or older.
