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.
Coach: Coach Lange and Coach Blake
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.
Boats we will train and race in:
Eights, Fours, Quads (sculling), Doubles (sculling), and Singles (Sculling)
- U15 events at Canal 54 Cup and other races.
- Freshmen 4x and Freshmen 2x at Sculling States if qualified
- Freshmen 8 and Freshmen 4 at Sweep States if qualified
- Under 15 4x+ at Regionals if speed standards are met.
