- stay focused
- feel unique

- have an outlet for my competitiveness."

Who is Norcal Crew?

Norcal Crew has openings for high school men and women. We are a competitive club sport that invites high school students from the Peninsula to try out the sport of rowing. There is no experience required to join our Novice teams. Ideal candidates are able to commit time to an after school program; interested in becoming part of a fun and competitive team; and willing to develop themselves physically with strength, stamina and full-body conditioning. Rowing is one of the highest recruited collegiate sports and any high school rowing experience could assist you in getting into the college of your dreams. We also have openings for coxswains (the person that steers the boat and motivates the crew).
