First Year (Novice) High School Squads- Fall of each Year
In the Fall of each year, the men's and women's novice squads consist of first-year athletes, ages 14-18, regardless of their year in high school. These athletes then combine with the returning or experienced rowers at the start of the Spring season for both practices and competitions.
High School Varsity Squads
The high school varsity squads consist of athletes that have completed the novice Fall rowing program, regardless of their year in high school.
Practices are 5 - 6 days a week. Rowing is a demanding sport but the rewards are great. Rowers are recognized as being disciplined, focused, supportive, and team-oriented individuals. In the Spring of each year, the Novice and Varsity Squads combine into a Men's and Women's team and compete in various events in the following age categories: U15, U16, U17, and Youth U19 but includes seniors that may be turning 19 in the Fall of that year).
Middle School Squads
Our middle school programs are designed to prepare younger athletes for high school sports and are comprised of first-time athletes in the 6th to 8th grade. These co-ed squads meet twice a week for 8-10 weeks and focus on building coordination and condition growing bodies, in addition to rowing technique.
Although they do not compete outside of LGRC, the spirit of competition is maintained through drills and competitions both on and off the water. Due to resource constraints, both middle school programs are limited and filled on a first come, first served basis.
