Marin Rowing Junior Novice Team Tryouts!
Men's Novice Team tryouts will begin at 4pm on Monday, August 22.
Women's Novice Team tryouts will begin at 4pm on Thursday, September 1.
Open to athletes 13 years-old and above, the boys and girls novice rowing teams are for anyone in their first year of rowing. The ideal rower size is 5'6" or taller for girls and 5'10" or taller for boys. The goal for coxswains is to be 110lbs or less for girls and under 120lbs for boys. Tryouts are held each year at the beginning of the fall school semester and last about 2 weeks. Once athletes have made the team, they will learn the fundamentals of rowing technique and racing to prepare them to advance to the varsity team the following year. The novice teams practice 5 days/week throughout the fall and 6 days/week in the spring. Weekday practices are 4-6:30pm. Saturday morning practices are 9-11:30am. The season runs August-May. Novice athletes may play a fall sport!
