Developmental-Competitive Rowing

This program is for athletes who have finished their first year of Novice rowing and wish to continue being competitive in rowing but are unable to commit to a full practice schedule. This program is great for athletes who have not been able to row over the summer and do not plan on competing at CURC caliber. Developmental-Competitive athletes will be required to purchase a Unisuit if they do not already have one, all other team clothing (including the polo shirt) is optional.
