What Our Athletes Say About Their Involvement With TYRA…

Rowing is a sport that embodies a completely different dynamic than any other. I think joining the team is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made because it inevitably builds a tenacious, competitive attitude uniquely applicable to other parts of my life. The coaches are incredibly encouraging and motivating, fostering an optimistic and invigorating team demeanor.”

What Our Parents Say About TYRA….

Since he has been a part of TYRA, my son has greater self-confidence, improved self-discipline and a real sense of unity with his teammates. The coaches are outstanding mentors and leaders to the athletes. The athletes are coached not only in rowing, but also in making good life decisions and maintaining good health and well-being. It’s a fantastic and very well run organization!
