Varsity - JV - Novice Teams - Youth Men & Women ages 12-18

Row Huntsville Competitive Youth Rowing sets an unparalleled standard for youth development. Our Competitive Travel Team is for rowing athletes, experienced or novice (new to rowing), who are dedicated to improving their rowing skills and competing at a high level. Within a strong team environment, rowers will challenge themselves physically and mentally. Rowers learn the art of rowing at the highest level while developing life-long leadership and team-building skills. We believe that rowing offers good health and fresh air, but at our sports highest expression, we build essential relationships between people from all walks of life that would not be possible without the shared discipline of shells, oars, and water. We presently serve athletes from 12 Huntsville City /Madison County public, private and home schools. 

Practice is five times per week, with additional optional practices throughout respective seasons, and will include several weekend Regattas each season. These seasons are broken down into Fall Head Racing, Winter Strength Training, Spring Sprint Racing and Summer Camps & Programs. All determinations for athletes to join the Competitive Squad are at the final discretion of the Director/Head Coach and will be based on athlete age, physical maturity, and emotional maturity.

Seasonal Program fees include: A highly trained coaching staff, state of the art equipment and program infrastructure management.

  • Regatta & Travel expenses will be invoiced separately.
  • Scholarships, payment arrangements may be requested, please contact the Program Director.
  • There are “no” program refunds for events canceled or missed due to athlete schedule conflicts or Race/Regatta cancellation…weather, travel or event related.

Fitness & Technical Development Programs - Ages 10-17

Row Huntsville offers this program as an alternative to the Competitive Travel Program. Meeting just 3 days per week, shorter practice times and no travel, allowing for flexibility in school and family schedules. Our focus will be Fitness, Technical Development, Competitive Team preparation, and fun! We will have inter-squad/team race challenges, possible competitive scrimmages and teach both Sweep and Sculling disciplines so athletes are prepared to enter the Competitive Team when the timing is right.

YOUTH – SUMMER Programs and Camps

Check out our exciting line up of summer rowing & watersport opportunities for Youth Athletes at all levels of experience. If you are new to Rowing & Watersports (Canoe, Kayak And SUP) summer is the perfect opportunity to come out and give it a try! No experience necessary for any of these co-ed camps, most of our current rowers had never even seen rowing before they came to this camp.

During each introductory camp, participants will learn the fundamentals of Sweep and Sculling and possibly some Paddling sports skills. The goal of the camps is to introduce each camper to Rowing as well as, physiology, nutrition, equipment, terminology, and safety of moving boats on and off the water. We also talk about College Scholarship opportunities and do some goal setting if athletes have the interest to know more. Following this camp Participants will acquire the basics of the sport and develop a solid foundation of skills and knowledge of rowing and paddling, which they can then build upon in one of our Fall Rowing programs.

Our Youth programs seek, as their primary goal, to create the opportunity for personal growth in young men and women through the sports of competitive rowing and paddling. Participation in our programs will not only introduce athletes to team athletics and fitness; but ultimately to themselves, as they strive to define their potential and place in this world. Their paths will be directly influenced by the hard work, discipline and goal setting skills they develop while involved in our programs. Above all, we believe participation in our Youth Programs will bring opportunity for our athletes to advance to distinguished Colleges and Universities, create successful careers and have fulfilling personal lives.     

  • To develop middle and high school youth, through the competitive sports of rowing and competitive paddling, into young men and women of character, honor, and integrity.
  • To provide programs that foster personal and team success defined by performing to our maximum potential, as individuals and a team. Through this success, we will create opportunities for collegiate scholarships and other post-secondary school achievements.     
  • To develop lifelong friendships, healthy lifestyles and model citizens in the youth who pass through our program. Create a sense of community, foster healthy competition, and instill values of sportsmanship, teamwork, and commitment. Create a culture of excellence that will carry on throughout life.
