When Is Crew Season?

Serious rowers say, “It’s always rowing season,” but FOHRC training begins in late August and we participate in events during the fall, winter and spring, all the way through the end of May.

Team coaches will provide scheduled workouts and water times at the beginning of each week via email. Fall rowing opportunities are available for novices and advanced rowers starting at the beginning of the school year. Winter conditioning begins shortly after the fall season ends and prepares the rowers for the Erg competition held each year at Granby High School.

The rowing regatta season (Spring) begins in March with the regattas running through the end of May. We will be rowing in regular weekly regattas during these periods, and participate in the Virginia Scholastic Rowing Championship (States) at Occoquan, VA.

Some additional regattas are “by invitation” and are based on skill level and qualifications.
