There aren't any benches either. Every student gets to row every day.
When each person contributes equally to the whole, every person walks away with friends for a lifetime.
To start rowing, all you need is a desire to learn. You don’t have to be born with great hand-eye coordination or effortless grace. The best rowers are simply people that work hard and thrive in a close-knit team. People of any age, athletic ability, and circumstance can participate in the sport because it is low impact and has little to no risk of concussion.
Unlike some other sports, rowing is a total body workout, involving all of the body’s major muscle groups: legs, arms and shoulders, as well as the abs and lower back.
Every student (ages 12-18) who wants to row in one of these four community boathouses can apply for a need-based youth rowing scholarship through the Pocock Foundation.
