Are you a high schooler interested in rowing?

Would you like to try a new sport? No experience is necessary! Get in shape and have fun! This is the fastest growing NCAA sport for women! Meet new friends and travel! College scholarship opportunities!

If you are interested in joining the High School rowing program you are invited to start at any point during the season.

If you are concerned about transportation to and from practice, students generally carpool to practice from their respective high schools. Also, parents set up carpools to help get all of the rowers home afterwards.
