Development Team

Development rowing is programmed for 8th through 12th grade students to try the sport for the first time.  The lighter schedule is also ideal for students who are not ready for the commitment of being on the competitive team. Participants learn safety aspects, basic technique, boat handling skills and also spend some time developing strength, flexibility and overall conditioning.
