Novice Team

A novice rower is anyone who has no prior rowing experience, regardless of age. Novices start their rowing education with water and boating safety. The safety of our rowers is of utmost importance to the program.

Experienced Team

After rowing through their first spring season, novices move up to row with the experienced crew. Experienced rowers compete at different levels depending on ability, experience, and commitment.

  •  “3V” and “4V” – rowers who have completed one spring season of rowing and are in the “third from varsity” or “fourth from varsity” boats.
  • “JV” – the rowers who are one step from the varsity boat
  • “Lightweight varsity” – the fastest lightweight rowers. Rowers in this boat are eligible for varsity letters in the spring. There is also a lightweight category at the Youth Invitationals each year
  • “Varsity” – the fastest and most capable rowers

Occasionally, there are changes in assignments during the season based on the results of seat racing, “erg” times, and coaches’ assessments of performance and participation.

Spring Weight Categories:

  • Light weight women must weigh 130 pounds or less
  • Light weight men must weigh 155 pounds or less
  • Open weight rowers have no weight restrictions

March 17 Green Lake Spring Regatta
GLC cost is $50/athlete.  This is one of 3 Green Lake Crew hosted Regattas held throughout the year where all of our rowers will participate.  This is a 1000 meter race and all activity is centered on the south west shore of Green Lake. Parking is difficult and illegally parked cars are often ticketed. Viewing is excellent all along the southwest shore and from the Aqua Theater.

We welcome parent volunteers for this event to help record results at the finish line and prepare food for our rowers (both an excellent opportunity to get to know other junior crew parents).  Watch for the sign-up note from the email group.
