Middle School Program


LGRC’s Middle School Program is a co-ed program for students in grades 6 through 8. The program uses a team environment to teach the basics of the sport including equipment knowledge (care and maintenance), water and land-based rowing technique, strength and conditioning, and rowing/boathouse etiquette. While the program requires students to make technical progress on the water, it also provides them time to learn how to manage the time demands of student athletics with their first priority, academic success. 

The sport of rowing has many benefits. It’s a great way to improve fitness, make lasting friendships and have fun. Once mastered, rowing serves the athlete for life. Come out and see what the excitement is all about!


Middle School Program I (MSP1)
MSP 1 is a non-competitive program for all 6th and 7th graders regardless of previous experience and 8th graders who have never rowed before. The program meets twice a week for 2 hours and is 8-10 weeks long. There is a fall session and a spring session. Coaches introduce young athletes to two different roles - rower and coxswain - and allow interested athletes to try both. Midway through the program, parents have the opportunity to meet with coaches to discuss their athlete's progress. MSP1 has limited enrollment and is often full.

Middle School Program 2 (MSP2)
MSPII is a non-competitive program for 8th graders with previous rowing experience.  They should have completed either MSP1 or a summer Learn to Row camp at LGRC or another club. The program meets twice per week for 2 hours and is 8-10 weeks long. There is a fall session and a spring session. Coaches introduce young athletes to two different roles - rower and coxswain - and allow interested athletes to try both. Midway through the program, parents have the opportunity to meet with coaches to discuss their athlete's progress. MSP2 has limited enrollment and is often full.
