Novice Team

The novice team supports those that are new to rowing or returning to the sport after some time away. Most of our "learn-to-row" graduates row for 1-2 years on the novice team to hone their skills in anticipation of racing.  The novice team meets at 6 p.m. on M, W & Th.

On the novice team you will get exposure to sculling and learn about racing. You'll have an opportunity to row with experienced rowers from the masters team, and learn more advanced technique beyond what is taught in our "learn-to-row" classes.​
