High School 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.  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.
