Varsity Rowing (Fall 2019)
Our most competitive Jr program, the varsity program is excellent for the athlete looking to take their skills and abilities with rowing to the next level. All members of the varsity squad must have completed at least one season of racing. These athletes practice 5 days a week, where the focus is building on their knowledge and skills of rowing.
