High School Team - Competitive Team
Join the NORC Competitive Team!
VARSITY – Rowers selected by the coach, due to performance or other factors, for our most competitive boats and races against other clubs’ varsity teams. Additionally, the varsity squad enters both varsity and junior varsity events. Varsity events are first boat races and the junior varsity boats can race in second, third and fourth boat events.
NOVICE – Rowers who demonstrate the potential and aptitude for competition and who seek to develop their competitive racing experience. Novice is an ideal place for those who wish to build strength and conditioning in order to eventually earn a spot on the varsity team. Additionally, USRowing defines Novice rowers as anyone who has started the sport within the previous 12 months. This means there are often a separate “novice” category at regattas, regardless of age.
