Recreational Rowing & Middle School Team
NORCAL is excited to offer a Recreational Rowing Program!
This program is designed for:
- Younger students (6th-8th grades) who aren’t ready for a full-time program but want to have fun learning about rowing and physical training at their own pace and perhaps compete occasionally in middle school events.
- Busy students (in middle or high school) with other commitments who still want to learn about rowing and training, keeping open the option of joining the competitive program as their interests and activities change. This may include occasional competition in novice events.
- Injured athletes who need appropriate light activity before rejoining their full-time Norcal program.
- Athletes and non-athletes who enjoy rowing but without having to compete at a high level.
The program is designed to be flexible. Athletes can join anytime and adjust their participation according to the demands of their other activities.
On-water rowing technique, boat and oar handling and nomenclature, safety on the water, as well as indoor rowing technique and physical training. We mainly focus on sculling (rowing with one smaller oar in each hand) but also cover the basics of sweep rowing (each rower uses one bigger oar).
The Norcal Recreational Program is designed to help athletes improve in all aspects: fitness, strength, flexibility, mental toughness, and discipline and is tailored to fit middle school through high school students.
Our schedule is designed to fit the needs of each individual rower from 2-5 days per week. Fees are based upon participation.
Practice: (Rowers may choose the days they want to row)
If you have to miss a practice, you are welcome to double-up and make-up the practice the following week.
