U 15 Rowing (Adavanced 7th and 8th Grade Rowing)

With an amazing amount of growth within our Middle School rowing program and our younger athletes desiring a more competitive option, we have developed a U15 (Under 15) program.  Last year we saw our U15 rowers make some amazing stride and saw them competing at a high level while competing against freshmen and other high school rowers within the novice category. Rowers within this program must meet physical standards and have the focus needed to practice and compete at a more competitive level. The goal of this program is to prepare athletes to compete at the high school Freshmen/Novice level, and gear each rower in this program to compete at the highest juniors levels when they enter high school.

U15 - Standards and Commitment Form


Practices: Monday, Wednesday, and either Tuesday or Thursday - 4:15 - 6:30 pm and Saturday 8 - 11 am.  Extra conditioning will be expected starting in February

Coach: Coach Kelin

Program Goals: U15 rowers and coxswain will focus on the proper development of speed on and off the water and focus on further development of technique and physical fitness. The goal of this program is to gear rowers to compete at the Freshmen level at State Championships and at the U15/U17 National Championships.
