Developmental Rowing Programs — Youth Grades 6-8

Until 2012, the opportunity to experience crew on the Northshore hasn’t been readily available until students enter high school. Boys and Girls who’ve attended rowing tryouts lacking experience will tell you they wish they’d had the chance to prepare. ARC’s Youth Development Program provides just the exposure needed for aspiring athletes who think rowing/crew might be just the sport for them. Students grades 6-8, will be provided essential instruction on proper rowing technique, boat safety, rowing etiquette and vernacular. Additionally, youth will receive proper age-specific dryland rowing machine training and strength/conditioning needed to handle the rigors of future tryouts and competition should they choose to pursue crew with their high school or a competitive club such as ARC.

Why Crew?

Crew has been a popular east coast sport for decades — recently expanding in popularity to the midwest and west coast.

Women’s college crew is exploding in growth: With 20 scholarships available per school for women’s rowing, rowing has more than any other sport—men’s or women’s—aside from football.

  • Scholarship opportunities are currently 2:1
  • Provides an excellent all-body physical workout & Crew is the ULTIMATE “Team” sport
  • Crew fosters resilience, respect, and collaboration

Glenview Girls Crew — Youth Grades 7-8

Announcing a NEW sports opportunity for all 7-8 girls at Springman, Attea and all Glenview middle school programs! The initial goal of this new club is to offer rowing to both GBS and GBN girls so that they can compete at the High School level in the Fall of 2018. Ultimately, this could be the genesis of creating a new Club Crew team for Glenbrook South and North athletes.
