Crew League - Spring/Fall/Winter

Youth Crew League is a recreational, noncompetitive, coed program for rowers who have completed Youth Learn to Row. Crew League builds upon and continues to develop and refine the basic skills acquired in Learn to Row.

During the spring and fall seasons, rowers will move from the barge, a skill development tool, to rowing in eight-person training shells. Crew League athletes learn posture, balance control, timing, and touch through interactive games and activities. They gain proficiency in rowing terminology and begin to apply the developing skills to the sport of rowing.

Crew League is offered in the spring and fall in two-day (T/Th) or three-day (M/W/F) after-school sessions for six weeks.

In the winter, recreational winter classes are offered for rowers who want to stay fit and prepare for spring rowing.

Crew League rowers who would like to continue rowing during the summer are eligible to sign up for our Summer Skills Development Clinics, in which they continue to build on rowing technique, boat skills, safety rules of the river, and fitness.
