Recreational Introduction to Sweeps and Sculls Registration

(Saturday only options available)

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. 

Rowers practice Tuesday and Thursday 5:00pm -7:00pm, Saturday 10:30am -12:30am. 


Fall Season Practice will begin on Tuesday, September 10th for the Recreational Squad. Intro Parents are scheduled for a Parent Meeting at 5:00 pm on the first day of practice.

Competitive Introduction to Sweeps and Sculls Registration

This program is offered to 7th and 8th graders, who would like to experience more intensive practices and conditioning with the goal of competing. 

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

  • John Hunter Regatta, Gainesville GA (March 2020)
  • Other races may be added

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.

Fall Season Practice will begin on Tuesday, August 27th for Competitive Intro Squad. Intro Parents are scheduled for a Parent Meeting at 5:00 pm on the first day of practice.
