Summer Rowing Opportunities

There are a number of things you can do during the summer and fall to learn new rowing skills, develop as a competitive rower/coxswain, or compete in national and international regattas. Below is a list of recommended rowing programs and camps. Please see your coach about which program might be the best fit for you, based on your goals for your personal development. Several of the programs are in high demand and should be reserved as soon as possible as space is limited.

Through their competitive and developmental rowing programs, athletes have the opportunity to work with coaches who have 70+ years combined experience preparing rowers for success at the state, national, United States Junior National Team, and collegiate levels. RRC is dedicated to improving the DMV rowing community as a whole, but most importantly to giving every rower and coxswain in the Resilient Rowing family the tools necessary to be successful for life both on and off the water.

Competitive Program:
The Resilient Rowing Competitive Team will be limited to the Top 32 Rowers (16 boys & 16 girls) and the Top 6 Coxswains. All athletes will be selected by at least two coaches based on: 2K score, power to weight ratio, 10 stroke & 1 minute watt test, overall fitness, technical aptitude, and boat moving ability. Members of this team will train in both sweep and sculling boats to race at the US Rowing Club National Championship and the annual Royal Canadian Henley. More information.

Langley Fall Learn To Row Program

Rowing offers a total body, low impact workout unequaled by any other sport. Unlike most activities, rowing incorporates the use of your legs, core and upper body. Rowers face backward in the boat and combine the power of leverage and precise timing to propel the boat through the water.

Langley High School Crew Club offers an introduction to the sport of rowing for individuals in the Langley pyramid in grades 8 and up. The fall session   includes 10 classes on Saturdays starting in Sept. through the end of October at the Sandy Run Regional Park.  This class introduces the basics of rowing – such as language and handling equipment, to performing rowing drills and rowing all eight.   Cost is $150.

No previous experience is needed.  This is a great opportunity to get familiar with the sport and prepare yourself to be a part of the Langley Crew Team.
