  Norcal Crew      

Norcal Youth Rowing at BIAC

Norcal Crew is a nonprofit organization with the mission of providing opportunities for rowing instruction, training, and competition to middle- and high school students across the San Francisco Peninsula. Norcal strives to provide a comprehensive training program to strengthen its student-athletes’ personal development.

The team’s goals are to foster a sense of team spirit by helping athletes develop both physical and mental strength; to broaden their horizons as they learn to trust and support teammates; and to develop their sense of confidence and commitment.

Applicants should contact this program directly about membership.

  Junipero Serra Crew     

Junipero Serra Crew is one of many sports offered at Junipero Serra High School. The primary season for competitive racing is during Spring Semester; freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors are welcome to try out. First year athletes may try out for Novice Crew, while experienced rowers must try out for Varsity Crew.

Serra tryouts officially begin in January; however, first year rowers are encouraged to attend a number of introductory practices at the end of Fall Semester. Rowers must successfully complete a number of indoor technical and physical training sessions before they are allowed to attend a practice on the water. Athletes not participating in another sport are expected to be present for all Novice practices.

Applicants should contact this program directly about membership.
