Registration for our summer programs has opened on FamilyID.com. We are offering both introductory and experienced programs.

Introductory programs will be tailored to the experience level of the participants, and do not include any racing.  These weekly programs are open to beginners and experienced rowers; rowers of similar skill levels will be grouped together and given appropriate workouts.

The experienced program will also offer daily practices but will also include some local races.  It is designed to maintain or improve fitness and technique for members of the team, but it isnot required.  This program will run in three-week (roughly) sessions.

Both programs are open to students from other towns and teams.

Full information is available at this link as well as below.

Interested in rowing? Whether you are brand new to the sport, or have some experience, you have the opportunity to row on Lake Cochituate this summer. Experience the fitness benefits and joy of rowing, enjoy being outdoors, bring your friends or make new ones!

These programs are open to the community. You do not have to be affiliated with Wayland-Weston Crew, the high school team. Junior programs have a minimum age of 13 years, or completion of 7th grade.

Junior Intro Sweep and Sculling (Learn to row and non-competitive)
An introduction to crew. This program is focused on sweep rowing (one oar per person) but may also include some sculling (two oars per person). Offered weekly, M-F, either 8-10am or 10am-12:00. You may sign up for multiple sessions.

This beginning program is ideal for 8th graders who are considering rowing in the fall; it will give you a sense of what crew is like. It is also useful for those who know they will be signing up in the fall but might miss the preseason.

Coxswains: You do not pay a fee. We can use experienced or novice coxswains for this program. This is an opportunity for you to learn, or to gain valuable experience. Please check the coxswain option.

A swim test is required prior to the start of your session. The swim test form can be found at: http://wwcrew.org/rowers/documents-and-forms. Completed forms can be brought to the first day or mailed to WWRA, PO Box 5508, Wayland, MA 01778. If you have already completed a swim test with WWRA, you do not need to do another. If you have completed a swim test for another rowing program, you may submit a copy of that swim test in lieu of doing another test.
