The High School Novice Teams are for Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors in their first year of rowing. We have both Fall training and racing, plus Spring training and racing. Athletes that wish to continue with the sport are expected to participate in Spring training and racing. This team travels to compete both in regional and state level regattas, with the State Championship Regatta held in Sacramento in May. Teams include both rowers and coxswains. There are some opportunities for Novice athletes to race in the Varsity boats.
Once they have completed their novice year, athletes are moved up to the Varsity squad. This program is for experienced rowers. We have both open weight womens crews as well as lightweight womens crews (130 pounds and below). Teams include both rowers and coxswains.
Coxswains are the boat leaders, they have a rudder for steering and call out the practice routine and race strategy at regattas. A typical boat will have eight rowers and one coxswain. We look for motivated people who are outgoing and naturally talkative. Generally the coxswains are smaller and weigh less than the rowers, with coxswains for the girls teams typically being under 115 pounds throughout high school.
Casitas Rowing SCHOLARSHIPS
We provide a robust and inclusive community supported scholarship program that makes it so almost everyone who wants to row, can. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need for the region we live in, and is decided on by a committee of thoughtful and dedicated club board members. Our goal is to get the kids that are committed to the team out on the water rowing.
There is a 2-week no commitment free trial period when a high school or middle school athlete first starts. Then, if the athlete makes the team, junior dues are broken out into 2 payments. Fall payment of $1,500 is to be paid in September, OR, if needed we can break it out into 4 payments of $375. Then, Spring dues of $1,875 are paid in January for rowing January to Championships in May. This can be 5 payments of $375 for Spring if needed. There is a “multi-family member” discount for families with either siblings rowing, or, if both a parent is on the masters and a child on the junior team. We want to make sure that any kid who wants to row, can, and that financial issues are not a factor in deterring athletes or their families. Please talk to us about options if you would like more information, our goal is to get these kids out there on the team.
Let’s get started today!
