The Middle School Program is designed to teach young athletes the basic technical aspects of the sport as well as provide an introduction to on-the-water training. This program is meant to provide each athlete with a serious understanding of the sport while also encouraging teamwork and fun. We love our middle schoolers and aside from having a great time cultivating a life long joy of rowing, this program has been the backbone of our success as a team. Open to athletes in the 6th, 7th & 8th grades. Athletes may only enroll in one Middle School Program. Please note there are three offerings:
Eight graders who have participated in our middle school program and are looking to take their rowing experience up a notch should talk to their coaches about the competitive development program. Competitive Development aims to give younger athletes a taste of what rowing with the varsity team will be like. The program meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 5:30-7:15 and focuses on continuing to develop technical expertise while also building in more fitness. Athletes work in a smaller coach to athlete ratio and get more individualized feedback. They will also participate in workouts on the erg and the water. If you have any questions about this program please email Cary Wasserman.
