Youth Rowing

We are pleased to offer the links below for online registration for the 22-23 season.

A Commitment to Excellence


This is a competitive program and enrollment demands far more than mere attendance. We expect commitment, hard work and sacrifice from all the young men and women who choose to become part of the program. In return, our athletes earn a spot in one of the most successful youth rowing programs in the country and carry on a tradition of winning and commitment to competition at the highest levels of youth sport.
