Why Rowing? Opportunity for High School and Middle School Students
We invite you and your students to experience rowing with the largest team in the area!
Triangle Rowing Club announces Spring “Sneak Peek Week” Feb. 21-25
“Every Spring and Fall season we hold a Sneak Peek Week to offer students age 12-18 the chance to get in the boats and learn how to row,” said TRC Head Coach Will White. “Each day during Sneak Peak Week, interested students and parents can talk to our rowers and coaches and find out why rowing is such an incredible sport,” he said. “We welcome rowers of all abilities, from novice to experienced, for a fun, safe, and positive experience,” White stressed.
Like other athletics, rowing offers students many opportunities such as fitness, teamwork, leadership, and character building, plus differentiates them when applying to college. It is a sport that works the whole body and teaches perseverance and discipline. Students can compete at their level: striving to compete in the “A” boat at National regattas or reaching a personal best while being cheered on by teammates.
Rowing is perfect for students who:
want to compete in an exciting, challenging team sport,
are looking to change the sport they compete in,
desire an off-season sport,
have never participated in an organized sport,
want to compete in a variety of athletics,
have an injury that prevents them continuing in their current sport,
are looking for a competitive sport they can do in college.
Sneak Peek Week participants will need to register online and complete an online liability form to participate. Tuesday, February 21 through Friday, February 24 sessions will be held 3:30-6:00 p.m. The Saturday, February 25 session is 7:30-10:30 a.m. A meeting for parents of returning and new rowers will be held the morning of February 25 at Lake Wheeler.
Registration and information are on the TRC website at www.trianglerowing.org/sneak-peek-week.
“Triangle Rowing Club’s membership keeps growing, as does the sport’s popularity in the South,” Coach White noted. “TRC is looking to bring in a new group of athletes that will push our program to record numbers. We hope to see the program's growth translate into a strong showing at the first ever NC Youth Rowing Championship in late April, and again at Regional Championships in May.”
