Recreational Introduction to Sweeps and Sculls

This program is for those who wish to learn the basics of both types of rowing in team boats while working on conditioning and core strength training. Typically three types of athletes participate in this program:

  • Middle or high school athletes interested in learning how to row and participate in a non-competitive atmosphere. 
  • Middle school athletes who love the sport and anxiously look forward to joining the middle school competitive or novice squad when they are age-eligible and deemed ready by coaches. 
  • High school athletes who love the sport but cannot meet the attendance requirement for the novice and varsity squads. 

By improving fitness and flexibility, this introduction is a great foundation for those interested in competitive crew in the future or in simply achieving and maintaining a higher level of athleticism.  The Fall 2016 fees for this squad are $450.00.

Recreational Intro practice runs from September 20th through November 17th, from 5-7 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.


Competitive Introduction to Sweeps and Sculls


This program is offered to 7th and 8th graders, who would like to experience more intensive practices and conditioning with the goal of competing while still participating 3 days per week. 


Fall season will consist of conditioning and training for and possibly competing in the following races: (Other regattas may be added.)

  • Chattanooga Head Race, Chattanooga, TN (10/8)
  • Head of the South, Augusta, GA (11/12)
  • Scrimmage with AJRA, Roswell, GA TBD 

This squad is an excellent prelude to joining the high school competitive squad. Previous rowing experience and/or a coach recommendation is required to join this squad.

Practice begins on September 6th and runs through November 17th, from 5-7pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.


There will be a Mandatory Parent Meeting on the first day of practice, September 6th at 5:00 pm.
