Juniors Competitive Team Spring 2022
The Westerville Juniors Crew Team is a competitive rowing team for youths from 8th to 12th grades. The program consists of intensive physical indoor and outdoor practice. The team primarily competes in sweep rowing events (one oar per rower) but also fields boats in sculling (two oars per rower) when the opportunity presents itself. Competitive big boat rowing enables hardworking athletes to develop into successful individuals both on and off the water. The special nature of rowing, where athletes must work together in order to achieve success, enables the formation of strong bonds between team members not typically seen in other team or individual sports. Coaches set high expectations of members of the competitive team in athletics, academics, and attitude.
Competitive High School rowers (Juniors) can start at eighth grade and above, at any experience level. All High School rowers compete in USRowing-sanctioned events held at local and regional regattas, while Varsity also competes nationally.
Although named Westerville Crew, the team practices on Hoover reservoir. 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.
