High School Rowing

Fall Rowing Season:

HIGH SCHOOL Fall Rowing Program

  • Typically our high school Fall rowing season runs 4 days/week, optional Saturday.  High schoolers from 9th grade through 12th can participate.

Weekday sessions will be 3:00pm - 5:30pm, while Saturday sessions will be 9:30am - 11:30am.  We understand that a 3pm start time might be too early for some of you because of when your high school classes get out.  Let us know if you will be late.


Coxswains will be in high demand. So feel free to show up for any session!  This applies for High School Coxswains showing up for boys AND girls practices.
