ROWING IN COLLEGE

 

Preparing athletes for collegiate rowing is not an explicit, primary goal of our program.  However, athletes who commit to our program through their senior year are typically prepared to successfully try out for a college team.  This level of preparation is the result of mental and physical development that our athletes undergo as we support them in reaching their potential. 

 

Collegiate rowing can be a rich and rewarding experience.  If you want to learn more about it, please talk to your coaches.

RACE RESULTS

 

Race days are a reward for the hard work put in the rest of the year.  Our goal for each race is, when we are done, to be proud of the effort we put in.  Medals and trophies are not an end in themselves, but rather a reflection of the levels of commitment and selflessness to which we aspire.

 

Information and results from select recent races are below.
