Middle School

Recreational Rowing

Norcal is excited to offer rowing for middle school athletes looking for an introduction to rowing.

This program is designed for middle school students looking for a structured program that will help them develop fundamentals as young athletes and prepare them for joining the novice competitive team.

We learn…

On-water rowing technique, boat and oar handling and nomenclature, safety on the water, as well as indoor rowing technique and physical training. The focus is entirely on sculling in small and medium-sized boats.  When we have land practices, athletes will develop fitness, agility, flexibility and movement, and core and technical fundamentals that will be applicable on the water as well as providing a solid foundation as young athletes.  This program is non-competitive, but will present numerous internal group and individual challenges and goals to be surmounted as the athletes progresses through the year.

Recreational Rowing


Gym clothes and running shoes/socks. Recommended: hat, sunscreen, reusable water bottle, sunglasses, windbreaker, and water-resistant sweats in cold weather.
