Coach Dave

Dave is a skilled rowing coach with more than 30 years of coaching experience. He began his life as a rower while pursuing an architecture project for school and during the research phase fell in love with the sport. He's a self-coached elite athlete who has won regattas and Nationals as a single sculling rower.

Sasqutach Scullers


In the shadow of the Cascade Mountains in the Pacific Northwest, Sasquatch's legend loomed large. Five teenage rowers ventured into the forest, chasing whispers. Amid ancient trees, they honed skills, mirroring the elusive giant's resilience. Inspired by nature's lessons, they faced life's currents with newfound strength. Guided by Sasquatch's spirit, they conquered obstacles, dominating both water and destiny. Their strokes became a symphony of determination, echoing through races and challenges. The legend's essence became their own, an embodiment of fortitude. Through woods and waters, they channeled Sasquatch's prowess, an indomitable force propelling them to triumph on every stretch of their journey.

What age are your rowers and what level of experience is required?

  • SS is a youth program. Our rowers are in 8-12th grade. 

  • No previous experience is needed.

  • We welcome new rowers. Please contact us at any point in the season if interested.

When is rowing season?

  • We offer rowing year round, divided into summer, fall, winter, and spring seasons. Some rowers row year round, others may only row during certain seasons depending on other sports or activities. 

  • Fall season is when head races are held. These are generally 4-5k courses, with crews starting 10 sec apart and timed on the course.

  • Spring season is when sprint races are held. These are generally 1.5-2k courses. Crews line up and race directly against each other. 

  • Winter and summer season are spent training and conditioning out on the water, as much as the weather permits. When it is too windy to row, practice is held indoors, focusing on weight training and using the rowing machines (ergs).

When and where are practices held?

  • Fall and spring Varsity water practices are generally Monday, Tuesday, Wednesayand Thursday afternoons, and Saturday mornings

  • Junior Varsity practice schedule is TBD but JV is usually on 

  • We row out of Keyport, Wa 

Are rowers expected to row every day?

  • No. Each athlete makes their own decisions about how often they come, knowing that we expect everyone to prioritize family and school before rowing. 

  • Almost all of our athletes row at least four days a week, knowing that the more often they row, the faster they are going to get. If that feels like too big of a commitment, let’s talk about it together. 

What style of rowing do you focus on?

  • We focus on small boat sculling (2 oars per person, in singles, doubles, and quads).
