Rowing is an incredible full-body sport, that pushes participants to achieve things they didn’t know they were capable of. It’s a sport kids can continue for a lifetime. Rowing teaches teamwork, goal-setting and self-discipline. By participating in competitive rowing, rowers will learn to commit their full mental and physical efforts towards achieving their goals.
