Participation Levels

We believe rowing is for everyone.

To accommodate various skill levels and time constraints, we provide two participation levels.  Whatever your athletic experience, whatever your schedule, we have a path for you to become a better rower.

Competition Team
Our Competition Team trains every weekday.  This participation level is best for returning athletes who have already completed a season of rowing.  However, athletes brand new to the sport can often pick up the technique quickly enough to be competitive as well.  Sign up below and talk to a coach to help you decide.

Development Team
Additionally, we offer a Development Team.  This participation level is designed for athletes new to sport in general, or new to rowing in particular.  The lighter schedule is also ideal for students whose work load cannot handle the daily commitment of being on the competitive team.  Sign up below!

At all practices, participants learn basic technique, boat handling skills, safety aspects, and also spend some time developing strength, flexibility, and overall conditioning.
