Chance to Learn Rowing Fundamentals for Crew Team

Manhasset Crew Team announces its “Learn to Row” Week. This will introduce rowing fundamentals to incoming Manhasset High School students of grade nine and above.

Beginners will experience sweep rowing in 8-person boats or “shells.” Each session will consist of orientation classes in which new rowers are fully engaged in learning the technique and execution of the rowing stroke as well as rowing command, boat handling, water safety and much more. The goal for this course is to teach the basics of sweep rowing. They start by teaching on-land, followed by on-water instruction and practice. They will teach you how to row in Olympic Style racing shells as well as how to row on a rowing ergometer. The camp will be held Monday, Aug. 24 - Friday, Aug. 28 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. For more information, please visit their website Manhassetcrew.org or email Emily Kavourias at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
