The club had a very successful rowing season last year and has grown to sixty members in a short period of time. This past summer over thirty student athletes tried to the sport for the first time. The team regularly competes on the national level and our athletes are also successful in gaining college scholarships at universities all over the US.
The essence of rowing is hard work. Parents that are looking for a sport for their children that instills some of the most valuable qualities and hardest to learn for their kids, should look no further than rowing. These include the capacity for unrelenting, hard work in a teamwork environment, and the concepts and merits that are involved in that, including commitment, sacrifice, bravery and selflessness.
