The Pocock Rowing Center offers year-round rowing opportunities for middle school and high school students attending greater Seattle area schools. Our knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate coaching staff is committed to helping every student-athlete have fun, work hard, and be successful on and off the water.
The PRC Junior Team is for high school student-athletes (8th graders accepted on a case-by-case basis) who want to have fun working hard. No athletic or rowing experience is required, but every athlete must be willing to work hard and go fast! Practices are Monday-Friday afternoons with frequent Saturday morning practices or weekend races, and regular attendance is required.

The Pocock Rowing Center Middle School Rowing and Fitness Club is a great way to introduce middle school aged children (6th-8th grades) to the sport of rowing, allow them to develop and learn at their own pace, and engage in fun and meaningful sport play. On the water, participants focus exclusively on sculling, learning first in wide, stable training singles and doubles and progressing into narrower, less stable recreational singles and team boats as their skills and confidence develops. Off the water, participants will engage in age and skill appropriate cardiovascular, flexibility and muscular endurance activities, including structured physical exercise and guided active games.
