Adult Coxing

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED

If you were to compare the sport of rowing to horse racing, the rowers would be the horse and the coxswain (pronounced cox-ən) its jockey. The mechanics of the rowing stroke require the athletes to orient themselves in the boat opposite the direction they are traveling, with the only exception being the coxswain. When racing the coxswain is called upon to steer, make strategic decisions, and coordinate the actions of their crew. In practice the coxswain has the additional responsibility of serving as liaison between crew and coach, and ensuring the effective integration of practice plans. Coxswains are expected to demonstrate strong leadership and decision making skills, as well as the ability to communicate effectively in a variety of scenarios.

Individuals interested in pursuing this role may register below. There is no program tuition for adult coxswains though you will be responsible for all fees related to competition, which will be assessed on an event by event basis.

Experience coxswains should register for the Intermediate program option and new coxswains should register for the Introductory option.
