Youth and Family Rowing Program

Youth and Family Rowing Program

In rowing, like most sports, equipment size really matters.  For a long time, this limited rowing to high schoolers and adults.  With the creation of the Little Sculling Boat, the world of sliding seat rowing is now open to the youngest of athletes.

Kindersculls is a traveling, half-day summer camp for 4-9 year olds with two specially trained coaches, a trailer full of little shells, and boatloads of fun.
