Coxswains

Coxswains – we NEED you this Summer. Coxies are an integral part of their crew’s performance. We have a detailed coxswain program we are excited to roll out this year. You will be coached on steering, practice management, assessing your crew from inside the boat, race plan execution, and more. We will have a number of collegiate level coxswains visiting us throughout the season to give you first hand accounts of coxing at a higher level of competition.
