Middle School Rowing
CRRC’s Middle School rowing program is designed for young athletes in 6-8th grades. Athletes will learn the basics of rowing in a relaxed, supportive and fun environment and build on what they learned in previous sessions. Athletes will practice the essentials of sculling (two oars per person) and sweep rowing (one oar per person) in racing shells on Lake Monona with land-based training on rowing machines (ergs).
Our middle school program is an 5-week program bringing the sport of rowing to area 6th-8th grade students. This program will focus on the FUNdamentals of rowing in a safe and engaging environment.
Middle school crew works on agility, strength, and teamwork while gaining hands-on experience in sculling boats on Lake Monona. Our coaching staff will provide instructional coaching and feedback on technique while the athletes develop an understanding of safety, rules of the water, self-awareness, sculling technique, and fitness.
Our middle school crew is the perfect introduction to the sport for our young athletes. They will gain skill acquisition and develop comfort and confidence in small boats while in a fun and supportive learning environment. The program is designed to take advantage of the developmental needs and strengths of the athletes. No experience is necessary!
