Spring  Rowing

Spring Rowing is the sprint season, athletes race on a 1500-2000m straight course head to head with other boats. These races typically last 6-8 minutes, and can be won and lost by mili-seconds. Spring Rowing is the competitive season, holding the championship races; states, midwest and nationals. 


The novice season is for any first season rowers. Athletes are able to join anytime in high school, and will all start at the same point, in their novice season. The novice year is built to teach the foundations of rowing, get the athletes interested in the sport, and form the baseline for our future JV and Varsity teams. 


Junior Varsity

Rowing JV is open for all athletes outside of the senior class. When the athletes reach JV, the focus is more into the intricacies of the sport, and building the foundation of fitness. These athletes start working on smaller boats, and getting more comfortable with pushing the boundries of their athletic capacity. 



The varsity rowers are learning the physics of rowing, delving deeply into the technique, working daily to improve their athletic capacity. They are focused on the championship season, leading the younger members of the team, and assisting to build the foundation for the future of the team.

These will teach us the technique and power application, strength and endurance, as well as breath, intention and how to be mindful
