Holiday_Sprints_2015_v2Berkeley High rowers, coxswains, coaches, and parents – past and present – will gather on Saturday, December 19 for our annual Holiday Sprints and Alumni Gathering.   The traditional 1,000-meter (or thereabouts!) races will start shortly after 9:00 AM and will be followed by brunch and an awards ceremony.

Alumni: Let us know you’re coming on Facebook.

Rowathon 2015

December 12th is our annual Row-a-Thon event, on Fourth St, Berkeley.

This is the team’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

The team sets up their rowing machines, or “ergs’, in the 4th Street shopping area in Berkeley, CA. The goal of rowing 400,000 meters on the ergs, means that each individual student rows 4,000 meters (nearly 2.5 miles). It is a fun way for the rowers and coxswains to participate and share with families and friends how crew has impacted them.
