Try Rowing! Join us for a Practice!

Are you in 8th - 12th Grade and looking for a new sport??
Come out and give rowing a try; No experience necessary! 

We'd love to have you come out on the water with us and giving rowing a a try. You'd join our team for warmups, learn the basics of the sport, potentially spend some time in a coach's boat, and then get in one of our rowing shells with our team!

Just complete this form and waiver, and our coach's will be in contact with you to setup a day(s) for you to come out on the water with us. 

If you enjoy your experience, we currently have open enrollment through the first few weeks of the Fall season.
