Ready to Row? Not sure if you're ready to make a commitment during the school year? Is this a good fit?
Joining River City Crew at the high school level provides a healthy balance between athletics and academics.
While rowing down the river, teenagers develop teamwork, fitness, competitive skills and have tremendous fun!
River City Crew's scholastic rowing program is offered throughout the year, and is broken down into three sessions or seasons - spring, summer and fall.
Even though rowing is not a familiar sport to many new high school students, relatively few new River City Crew (RCC) members have ever rowed prior to joining our program. Many have never even seen rowing before.NOTE: Beginning fall of 2013, new members to RCC must have previous rowing experience or have to have taken Summer Learn-To-Row sessions. All others will be put on a waiting list and accepted only if there is room on the team.
River City Crew holds "Learn-to-Row" (LTR) classes for 8th to rising 11th graders including beginners as well as intermediate / advanced Rowing Camp every summer. We also have the ability to have sculling lessons during the summer months as well. Learn-to-Row introduces first-timers to the equipment, procedures and basic techniques. The classes are a great way to learn more about the sport and make new friends. details
RCC offers rowing programs for new & member participants every year in 8th through 12th grades. The team is a "competitive-level program" specifically designed for students who do not have a rowing program associated with their high school. During the fall and spring seasons, the team travels throughout Virginia to compete in several regattas against other high schools and clubs. BEGINNING IN THE FALL OF 2013, NEW MEMBERS OF RCC WILL HAVE TO HAVE PREVIOUS ROWING EXPERIENCE OR HAVE TAKEN OUR SUMMER LEARN-TO-ROW SESSIONS. Those not having experience will be put on a waiting list and admitted only if there is room on the team. 12th graders are not accepted w/o rowing experience. No new rowers are accepted in the spring season. details
