High School Rowing



White Rock Rowing is a competitive racing program designed for high school athletes who want to reach their fullest athletic potential and compete with the top crews in our region and the nation.

Varsity rowers have at least 1 year experience as novice or varsity.

Novice rowers are athletes with no experience or have been in our middle school program and may register as novice with coach approval.  


Dues include instruction by the WRR coaching staff, with almost 7 decades of competitive experience at the highest levels, training our varsity & novice athletes 6 days a week in rowing technique, weight training, ergometer conditioning, body circuits, mental conditioning, and team building. The program teaches both sculling and sweep rowing.



Fall practice season:  Aug 23 -December 17, 2021, 




Monday - Friday 5:00 - 7:00 pm

Saturday 7 - 9:30 am*

*Saturday morning practice times may vary slightly per crew.





Saturday 9 - 10 am, once per month.

  • WRR athletes are expected to participate in a team cleanup of our FTLOTL shoreline and a short boathouse clean up. It runs approximately 1-hour. 

  • Schools often require specific volunteer hours so please contact the coach for the other volunteer service options at the boathouse.



Critical to any team’s success, all high school athletes are expected to attend all practices. Coaches will take attendance, and athletes who regularly miss practice will not be in the most competitive boats. Missed practices will impact boat lineups. Unavoidable absences must be emailed directly from the athlete to the coaching staff as early as possible. 


Physicals are highly recommended, and a swim test is required.
