Recreational Rowing & Middle School Team
NORCAL is Excited to Offer Recreational/Developmental Rowing for Middle School Athletes!
This program is designed for younger students (6th-8th grades) who aren’t ready for a full-time program but want to have fun learning about rowing and physical training at their own pace and perhaps compete occasionally in middle school events. 8th graders have the option of also joining the novice competitive team.
On-water rowing technique, boat and oar handling and nomenclature, safety on the water, as well as indoor rowing technique and physical training. We mainly focus on sculling (rowing with one smaller oar in each hand) but also cover the basics of sweep rowing (each rower uses one bigger oar).
The Norcal Recreational Program is designed to help athletes improve in all aspects: fitness, strength, flexibility, mental toughness, and discipline and is tailored to fit middle school through high school students.
