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 reserved for returning athletes who have already completed a season of rowing.  We ask that athletes who choose this participation level take seriously the privilege of representing the team well both at practice and at competitions.

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.

Scholarships Available
Because we believe rowing is for everyone, we try to make scholarships available to those who need them, but funds are significantly limited.  Check out our scholarship page for the application process.
