Chesapeake's Premier High School Rowing Club
NO TIME-OUTS. NO HALF-TIMES.
JUST 2000 METERS OF ADRENALINE-PUMPING, LUNG BUSTING PAIN
REAL ATHLETES ROW
Everyone else just plays games.
Grassfield Rowing is a composite team that practices and competes alongside Great Bridge Crew. Our team is made up of area students, not just Grassfield Students, from grades 8-12. Grassfield rowers will be zoned to attend Grassfield High School, but that is not a requirement to join the team.
Competitions held in the spring do require rowers to compete in a boat with other rowers that attend the same school. The Grassfield Rowing and Great Bridge Crew Coaching Staff will work to accommodate student-athletes that do not have a rowing program at their school for the spring.
Located along the Intracoastal Waterway, Grassfield Rowing trains year-round with the coaching staff of Great Bridge Crew. Our Boathouse is found tucked away behind the Atlantic Yacht Basin, and we practice from the Great Bridge Bridge to the Centerville Bridge.
During Regatta Season we travel to Matthews, Charlottesville, and up to Northern Virginia to compete. We often travel to Ohio, Tennessee, and Philadelphia for larger national races.
Crew is the ultimate team sport demanding the full attention and effort of its rowers. It is a sport that is not only physical, but mentally engaging as well. Our coaches teach our rowers to work for the betterment of themselves as well as their team. Rowers are responsible for the care and maintenance of their equipment, and their gear as well as working out in the community. They become a family, often being together off the water as well as on.
Summer Novice Camp Registration Now Open
Learn to Row this summer with Grassfield Crew
Registration has opened for our Summer Rowing Camp. No experience is necessary as our coaching staff will teach your student the basics of rowing through a series of land and water sessions. Students will first learn the basics of the rowing stroke on an erg and will move onto the water where they will receive instruction in rowing shells that vary in size from an eight-person sweep boat to a four-person quad sculling boat.
