Westford Community Rowing offers youth (high school and middle school) programs for both novice and experienced rowers over the summer. During the spring and fall seasons we support Westford Academy Crew.
Browse the 2022 summer programs below for more details.
Junior Learn to Row
Introduction to Rowing (Junior LTR Session 3)
This program is for rising 8th-12th graders with no prior rowing experience. Students will learn the basics of the rowing stroke as well as boat anatomy, safety and boathouse procedures. Depending on numbers, a mix of sculling and sweep rowing will be introduced in a range of boat classes (singles, doubles, fours, etc.). This program is appropriate for students wanting to experience what rowing is all about, do something new over the summer, or aim to join Westford Academy Crew in the fall. This is a shorter, more intensive form of the four week Learn to Row program above.
