Rowing requires a commitment by athletes to individual development and teamwork. Our mission is to develop highly motivated student-athletes into becoming competitive scullers looking to gain racing experience, enjoy working hard with their teammates, and strive daily to reach their full rowing potential.

Coaches and athletes on the team commit to embracing a culture of personal responsibility, full accountability, and superior sportsmanship on and off the water. SCH boys crew promotes this culture by producing an opportunity for student-athletes to develop through practice and competition in pursuit of excellence in academics, athletics, and life.
