Cazenovia Master and Scholastic members of the Cazenovia Rowing Club will be conducting a Learn to Row clinic from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, in the Auxilliary Gym at the Cazenovia High School.
All middle and high school students are invited to come out to learn the basics of the rowing stroke, the terminology used while rowing and the etiquette and safety of rowing. The workshop is free of charge.
“This is a great opportunity for interested junior and senior high school students to get a taste of what rowing is like before the season begins,” said Kathy Rushworth, member of the Cazenovia Rowing Club’s Board of Directors. “With this mild winter we’ve been having, we should be able to get boats in the water in April this year.”
The Cazenovia Rowing Club conducts a coached Scholastics Program for young rowers between 13 and 17. Last year, four members of the Scholastics Program claimed titles at the New York State Club Championships– Addie Bartlett, Corey Anderson, Hannah Chanatry and Elon Schonmaker – and went on to compete at the USRowing Youth Nationals in Oak Ridge, Tenn.
The Spring Scholastics Program, under the direction of Coach Olivia Bosies, begins on March 12 this year, with indoor practices at Carpenter’s Barn. Practices on the lake are expected to begin in April.
