Beginning classes & non-competitive rowing team for 5th-7th grades
Start Rowing with a Beginning Class
Beginning Middle School Rowing Classes are offered May through August each year. Classes are three weeks long, for nine practices, and introduce new rowers to the basics of the sport. After completion of a Beginning Class, rowers may move into Middle School Team Sessions, or may be advised to take the Beginning Class once more to increase their comfort in a rowing shell before joining Team Sessions. Please email any questions to coach Holly Hopkins
Starting in May 2021, MSR is transitioning back to using multi-person boats in addition to single person boats. When in multi-person boats, rowers are required to wear a mask. Through August 2021 families may, for personal safety considerations, choose to keep their athlete in a single, however there will be a limited number of singles-only spaces available. Athletes ready to row in multi-person boats will still have the opportunity to row in single person boats during some practices.
