Middle School Rowing



The Middle School Program at Greenwich Crew is designed to teach young athletes the basic technical aspects of the sport as well as provide an introduction to a more structured training regimen. This program is meant to provide each athlete with a serious understanding of the sport while also encouraging teamwork and fun.

During the fall and spring, the focus of the program is on developing boat-moving abilities while also building in the strength and conditioning aspects of the sport. During the winter season, the focus is on developing athletes through "dry-land" training: erging (on the rowing machine), circuit training, stretching and having fun.

Middle-schoolers at Greenwich Crew are afforded the opportunity to have a great time cultivating a life-long joy of rowing, while also making an important contribution as part of the program has been the backbone of Greenwich Crew's success as a team.
