Competitive Squad

The 'Comp Squad' program is ideal for those who want to train and race at local, regional, and national regattas. Racing is not mandatory for this program but, as the title implies, this program is “competitive” in that lineups and boating selections are organized with the explicit intent to field the most competitive boats, both sweep and sculling.
