Why Crew?

Crew delivers cardio, strength training, flexibility, and a level of focus that clears your mind and refocuses your energy. Rowing is less injury prone than many other sports.

Year-Round Sport
Fall is Head Race season (5,000 meters) and spring is for Sprints (1,000 and 2,000 meters), with the ultimate goal of qualifying for Nationals. Rowers practice five to six days per week both on land and water. Conditioning training is ongoing and continues in the winter.
