Rowing – MB Jr Crew: Novice Boys Session 2 (13-19
August 19, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
This course is for athletes who are new to rowing as of June 1st of the current calendar year. The novice program is open to those starting grades 8-12 in the fall. A sense of accomplishment and pride is gained as youth work to meet the physical and mental challenges of the sport of rowing. Classes teach the fundamentals of the stroke as well as boat handling, water safety, and care of equipment. Spring and Fall seasons are geared towards competitive racing. Summer sessions emphasize technique and skill building. No regattas are scheduled during the summer. If you are unsure which program to register for, call the office at 206-386-1913. Because this is a team sport, we encourage regular attendance.***This course requires a float test taken prior to class. The float test cannot be taken at the Rowing Center but are available at our pools, www.seattle.gov/parks/pools.asp***
