Youth Mission

Our Youth programs seek, as their primary goal, to create opportunity for personal growth in young men and women through the sports of competitive rowing and paddling. Participation within our programs will not only introduce athletes to team athletics and fitness; but ultimately to themselves, as they strive to define their potential and place in this world. Their paths will be directly influenced by the hard work, discipline and goal setting skills they develop while involved in our programs. Above all, we believe participation in our Youth Programs will bring opportunity for our athletes to advance to distinguished Colleges and Universities, create successful careers and have fulfilling personal lives.
