Crew is like family. Since we are together so much, we just can’t bear to stop training just because it’s summer. We continue to work on ourselves while offering an opportunity for newcomers to try out the sport and get out on the water.
We spend one week in a structured rowing clinic in Ada, with our JV and Varsity rowers helping out when they aren’t training. Often, practice turns into making plans to hang out together. We might go kayaking, clean the boathouse, gather for a bonfire at someone’s house, take in a movie or go out for a meal.
