Program Overview

Program Overview

The Oakland Strokes offers school year and summer programs for “Junior” rowers; youth who are in High School or Middle School. We are the largest Juniors only program in the country and take pride in our focus on the development of young athletes.

High School Racing Team

The High School Racing Team is a school year program for grades 9 to 12. The season mimics the school year, starting in early September and running through the Southwest Junior Rowing Championships (SWRJAs) in early May. Depending on their finish at SWRJAs, some athletes will qualify for the Youth national Championships in mid-June. 

The team is separated into Men’s and Women’s squads, and each squad consists of a Novice and Varsity team. The Novice team is for any first year High School athlete. The Varsity team is for any returning athlete that has completed their Novice season. Note that women may act as coxswains on the Men’s squad.

Middle School Program

The Middle School Program is a series of camps held during the school year for grades 6 to 8.  Each camp is a 6 week session that is focused on teaching the basics of rowing, including stroke development and fitness.  While each session is a separate entity, athletes who sign up for multiple sessions will find something new to learn each time they go on the water.

The Advanced Middle School Program is a school year development program for grade 8. The athletes in the Advanced Middle School Program must attend at least one regular Middle School camp and obtain their coach’s permission to enroll in the program. The program focuses on improved rowing technique and fitness, with the rowers being eligible to race in specified Middle School events during the year.

Community Outreach Program

The Strokes partner with local schools and community organizations to do outreach into the Oakland neighborhoods surrounding our boathouse. The goal of this outreach work is to get more Oakland youth involved in rowing, particularly those who are historically under-represented in the sport.
