Why is rowing such an exclusive sport? Because not just anyone can rise to the level of performance required to be a competition rower! Thanks to an SARC alum (now rowing for lightweight men's at Princeton) who is creative with videography, the video below is presented to you....
This program is for you if you are interested in rigorous training and competing, coupled with the fun and camaradarie of the ultimate team sport! Although some younger athletes are accepted, this program is geared toward 9th-12th grade boys and girls. No rowing background is required; however, prior athletic experience is a positive.
We have two groups:
Both squads also participate in sculling as training schedules permit.
This program is for those who wish to learn the basics of sculling in team boats while working on conditioning and core strength training. Typically three types of athletes participate in this program:
By improving general fitness and flexibility, introductory sculling is a great foundation for those interested in competitive crew in the future.
Learn To Row Summer Camp is offered for rowers from the 6th thru the 12th grades to those wishing to learn the sport of rowing. Camps are one week long, with either a morning or evening session. You may wish to participate in multiple weeks to maximize your experience or participate in weeks 4 or 5 which is a more advanced curriculum. While the beginner lessons are still offered for newbies, advanced rowers can hone their skills and athleticism.
We highly recommend that your athlete sign up for at least two sessions to see what crew is all about. Please click on the Summer Programs tab for more specific information for the summer season.
