Our approach to middle school rowing
Our middle school program offers sculling only, with one oar in each hand. The symmetrical load of sculling is safer for young bodies. (We shift to sweep rowing - two hands on only oar - in high school.)
Kids learn at their own pace. We are primarily a development program.
For highly capable scullers, we offer a couple of formal races each season.
We row on a lovely pond, which offers enormous flexibility to our program for water access.
