Novice Program

Novice Rowers

The men’s and women’s novice teams are open to any high school student in their first year of competitive rowing. No rowing experience is necessary to join the novice team. If an athlete has been rowing for the recreational or middle school team but has not had any experience racing, they are considered a novice until after their first year of racing. The novice teams train at a competitive level while learning the skills and laying the foundation for a successful high school and college rowing career.
