No prior rowing or coxswains experience is required.
The program is open to 8th thru 12th graders. 8th-grade students who have completed Sculling may also participate in learning Sweep rowing skills. 8th graders that have not learned how to Scull should consider the Middle School Sculling program before registering for this program.
Objective: The focus is on learning basic rowing/coxswains skills or building upon existing skills if the athlete feels additional basic skills-based training is required.
The session is 8 weeks long (32 days).

Athletes 18 or older - Must complete and submit a Certificate of "SAFESPORT "Core" Training completion.
Athletes turning 18 during the sessions will be required to take “Core” Center for SafeSport Training upon turning 18. To prevent any disruption in eligibility, athletes turning 18 need to complete training prior to their birthday and submit certificate of completion.
WATER BOTTLE - To help reduce the waste created by the use of disposable water bottles, we ask rowers to arrive with two reusable water bottles daily.
SWIM TEST - All participants are required to have a swim test on file with their crew boosters’ club or with Prince William Crew (PWC). The requirements and form can be downloaded from the Forms page.
PHYSICAL EXAMINATION FORM - All participants are required to submit a current (within the past 12 months) VHSL Jan 2021 or equivalent Sports Physical Examination. It is strongly suggested, but not required, that you use the VHSL form so it may be used in participating in other activities requiring a physical during the school year. Please only submit a copy of the physical and retain the original for your records. The requirements and form can be downloaded from the Forms page.
SESSION CAP - A session may close before the scheduled closure day due to the "cap" for that session being reached. If this occurs, the registrant will be placed on a waitlist. Should a slot open, the registrant will be contacted before the entry is moved from the "waitlist" to "active" status. If no slots open up, you will be contacted by the Program Administrator to see if you would like to move to another potential time slot being offered. Register early to avoid being placed on the waitlist or preferred time slot closing.
SESSION CANCELLATION - A session will be "canceled" if an insufficient number of rowers are registered by the Friday before the session scheduled start date. In case of cancellation, the registrant will receive a full refund or may transfer to another available session. This will be coordinated by the Program Administrator.
