Boys' Varsity Crew
The Taft Boys Crew is comprised of a fleet of five four-rower shells. Each of these boats competes throughout the spring season against strong competition from around New England; boats compete in a challenging dual racing schedule, and attend the DuPont Cup and Founders Day regattas. The top four boats compete each year to qualify for the New England Interscholastic Rowing Association Regatta, a regional championship that represents some of the best competition in the country in scholastic rowing.
Rowing at Taft offers a great opportunity for those new to the sport, as well as for those with some previous experience. Throughout the season, rowers and coxswains learn a great deal about the sport, about their teammates, and about themselves. Rowers are asked to push themselves and test themselves on a regular basis as we compete throughout the season. Athletes who move on to college programs at all levels are well prepared after competing in the New England region in their time here.
