This program is for any middle school student in grades 7 or 8 who is interested in learning how to row in sculling shells. a sculling boat is a boat with 2 oars. A sweep rowing shell is when each rower has one oar. We believe that younger bodies benefit from learning how to row with two oars in smaller boats. It teaches a more skilled approach to the sport of rowing before jumping into a sweep rowing shell with only one oar.  Middle School rowers practice at the same time of day as the high school crews but for only 3 days/week as opposed to 5. Some competitive opportunities may or may not be available depending on the participants and the coaches discretion.

SPRING PROGRAM

The sculling sessions for Spring 2018 will start on April 30. There will be two programs available for all middle school scullers.

Program 1 is a beginning sculling class that focuses on feeling comfortable in the boat, practicing basic skills, and having fun.

This program runs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:30-5:30pm.

Program 2 is for more experienced scullers that are interested in working as a team, training a little more seriously on the water, increasing their competency as rowers, looking towards continuing to row on the advanced sweep team and still having fun! 

This program runs Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 3:30-5:30pm.
