ARE YOU ATHLETIC? There's great opportunities for you to get into college as a student athlete here at IKAIKA and also receive scholarships to make the journey a little easier through the sport of Rowing!
FROM PADDLING TO ROWING TO COLLEGE!
Learn how others achieved & enjoyed this college pathway. Row in the ONLY rowing 4 in the islands. Train and achieve a great erg score, find out what you need to get recruited and plan your college future!
THE IKAIKA ROWING PATHWAY:
Step 1: Attend a Saturday Rowing Clinic (Recommended age 12+)
Clinics will be held monthly on Saturday mornings, and will teach you the basics of rowing technique on the erg, how to handle equipment and all the parts of the boat, and about the rowing path and all the doors it can open up for you.
Step 2: Rowing Development Squad (Recommended age 12+)
After completion of the clinic, you will be welcome to train in our Wiki Wiki Squads program with a Rowing Focus. These practices will be using the erg (rowing machine) to increase technical ability, strength, and endurance, and be coached by knowledgable rowers and coxswains from our Rowing Squad.
Step 3: Rowing Performance Squad (High school aged athletes)
Athletes who show exceptional improvement and performance, and exhibit ASPIRE Philosophy will be invited to participate in Rowing Performance Squads. These dedicated athletes practice year-round at 5:30am in the mornings before school and have the honor of being the only crew to represent Hawaii in mainland regattas. These athletes are looking ahead towards their collegiate rowing careers!
Step 4: Get Recruited (High school aged athletes)
Ikaika has sent nearly 40 athletes on to row in college! Be advised through the college rowing recruiting process and find your perfect school and rowing program.
