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.

Essex Memorial Day Parade

Don’t miss the small town charm of a Memorial Day Parade in Essex. The parade begins at 9 am and progresses to the Town Cemetery for a military rifle salute to our country’s war veterans and then up Main Street to the Causeway Bridge. Town officials lead the parade followed by members of the school band and various athletic organizations. Norman Rockwell couldn’t have painted a better picture than our parade coming down Main Street.
