Our team measures itself against the best. We prepare our rowers to row at the top level.
We believe that when rowers engage deeply with the sport they learn lessons about teamwork, collaboration, preparation and leadership that benefit them for life.
Our program empowers rowers to be the best versions of themselves on and off the water.
Spring registration is open! No experience is required to register. Please register as a novice if this is your child's first season with the team.
