The Westerville Crew U14/15 program is designed for middle schoolers who are interested in learning the basics of rowing and experiencing the fun and camaraderie that comes along with the sport. Practices usually meet two times a week during the winter, spring, summer and fall seasons - with all seasons being outdoors except for Winter. Athletes in 8th grade can choose between this program (which meets less often) or our juniors program (based on coach recommendation). 

This program will focus on rowing in octs/quads/doubles (each rower has 2 oars), and is better suited as an introduction of rowing for younger athletes. During on-the-water days, athletes will warm-up together before getting on the water. They will learn very basic oar-handling skills and learn how to participate in a safe practice on the water. The athletes will practice safe boat-handling skills, familiarize themselves with the rowing language, and improve their basic rowing technique. U14 athletes will also get to experience competition with other middle school programs from the Midwest at a limited number of the regattas. 

Being a club sport, any rower from Central Ohio is welcome to participate - we serve students in every school district, parochial,  private or home school.  Our central location attracts student athletes from a diverse listing of school districts including New Albany, Columbus Academy, Westerville, Gahanna, Pickerington, Worthington, Olentangy, Big Walnut, and many others. Any student is welcome to come and give rowing a try. 

All of our coaching staff strive to provide a world class rowing experience for all of our athletes. Most of the coaches are former collegiate athletes, having  decades of experience in the sport. We hope you take the opportunity to come give rowing a try by stopping by at a practice session or registering to participate.
