Prince Willian Crew (PWC) hosts summer junior rowing programs for 7th through 12th grade students.
In the fall, rowing programs are available to students from 8th through 12th grade.
2020 Summer Programs have ended.
PWC is working on a possible fall rowing program and hope to have registration available sometime next week.
While Social Distancing guidelines remain in place – We will provide a majority of our programming in Singles (1x), however there are circumstances that allow participation in multi-seat boats provided same household/residence.

- (NEW) Private Lesson: A personalized private lesson is a great way to develop your skill. Our certified rowing instructors will give you one-on-one lessons tailored to your individual goals and needs, whether you are a beginner or looking to refine your skill. Private instruction is for you if you are looking to:
- Learn to row but cannot make a class or would rather an individual setting.
- Gain confidence in a single scull
- Receive individualized coaching
- Switch up your usual rowing routing
- Improve your technique, fitness and results
- (NEW) Semi-Private
Do you like the benefits of group rowing, but want the individualized attention of private instruction. Semi-private and group lessons give you the best of both worlds. By rowing together in a double (semi-private) or a quad (group), your coach will be able to focus on the dynamics of your boat as you work to not only improve your own technique but combine as a team to create an effective, dynamic stroke and boat speed.
Due to current Covid – 19 mandates – Boats larger than singles are restricted to “same household”.
- Private Lessons Scheduling: Each lesson is scheduled at your convenience, availability of the coach, and equipment on a not to interfere basis with calendar programming. A Swim Test Certificate and a current (within the past 12 months) physical are required.
