Youth Novice Racing Team (year-round)
Our beginner-level programs are designed to get youth on the water quickly and prepare them for the next step, the Novice Racing Team. All Intro/Novice practices are taught at an age-appropriate pace. Our professional coaching staff fosters a fun, energetic, and enthusiastic atmosphere for all levels of fitness and ability.
Enter the challenging and competitive world of youth racing! Our goal for the Youth Racing Team athletes is to prepare each rower for local, regional, and national competition. Athletes will expand their mental and physical toughness by participating in daily practices designed to develop self-discipline and the ability to achieve the highest level of fitness in sport.
Athletes entering their first year of competition should register for the Novice Racing Team and experienced rowers should register for the Varsity Racing Team. Teams will travel to both spring and fall regattas which may be local, regional or national (for those boats that qualify). In addition to the stated practice times, athletes will be expected to be available to load/unload the boat trailer both before and after regatta days.
All Racing Team athletes are strongly encouraged to participate in year-round programming to maintain fitness and continually improve technique, speed and skill. Those wishing to pursue other sports during the winter or summer (non-racing) seasons should speak with the Head Coach directly.
This is a introductory program designed for students in grades 6-8. We will teach the basics of the sport of rowing in a fun, non-competitive format. This class will meet twice a week and runs in 12 week sessions, Spring-Fall only. Minimum age is 12.
