Coxswains Needed!

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

Coxswains play a critical role in the sport of rowing. In addition to steering the boat, making strategic decisions and coordinating the actions of their crew, coxswains serve as a liason between the crew and coach.

Individuals interested in pursuing this role should specify which program they are seeking to cox when sending their registration email (new coxswains should register for the Introduction to Rowing option). There is no program tuition for adult coxswains though you will be responsible for any fees related to competition, which will be assessed on an event by event basis.

Coxswains that have reached a certain skill level may be eligible to receive an athlete-funded stipend if they are able to committ to a full season. Email michelletoomey@essexrowing.org for more information.
