Rowing is a varsity sport at Riverside Military Academy. Our crew team competes during the Spring season in shorter sprint (2000m) races. We race against the top scholastic and club programs from across the Southeast, and the team regularly travels throughout Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina to compete. Our crew team trains on Lake Lanier and regularly partners with Lake Lanier Rowing Club.
Rowing is an excellent sport for cross-training because of the low risk of injury and the opportunity to reach peak cardiovascular conditioning.
Students must pass a swim test that will include treading water for 10 minutes, swimming 100 meters, and donning a life jacket while in the water. Students will also participate in two weeks of land training.
Members of the Riverside Military Academy Rowing team can earn varsity letters.
