Racing Teams

The primary goal of the racing team is to bring together a group of motivated athletes who will work together over the season to perform as a group. The biggest determinant of success is commitment to the team and your personal improvement as a rower and athlete. The competitive team provides more time with the coach, additional on-water practice, structured training workouts on land and on the water, and a focus on racing strategies and readiness. Based on participation racing team members can row in 1x, 2x, 4x, 4+ or 8+. Racing team members have access to all racing privileges, services and equipment for the entire rowing season they have registered for. Seasons are spring/summer running from mid-April to July and then Fall which runs August through Oct.
