Optimal Wellness for Life (OWL) Exercise Program | OWL on the Water

OWL on the Water helps kid find a love of exercise through sports

OWL on the Water (OOTW) is a unique rowing-based exercise program designed to help kids with higher weights discover their inner athlete in a supportive team environment. The main goals of OOTW are to foster an enjoyment of exercise while improving fitness and health. At each practice, expert rowing coaches lead kids through one hour of conditioning followed by one hour of rowing, with the intensity adjusted based on kids’ fitness levels. We offer 4 sessions each year with practices twice a week.

Who Can Participate?

The program is open to kids 12 to 18 years old in OWL or other affiliated programs of Boston Children’s Hospital. To remain eligible, all participants must be actively participating in the Optimal Wellness for Life (OWL) Clinic or another multidisciplinary program at Boston Children’s Hospital.
