Cardiovascular health, strength, endurance and flexibility – competitive rowing is a full-body workout that places intense aerobic and anaerobic demands on an athlete
Teamwork – on and off the water, rowers must work together for the team’s success; a winning boat requires unison of timing, positioning and mindset
Camaraderie – the shared experience of pushing themselves to their limits before and during competition creates bonds between rowers that last well after high school
Values – rowers will develop many important personal traits including trust, dedication, willpower, selflessness, and determination
Concentration – rowers must “keep their heads in the boat” at all times and be mentally prepared to repeat hundreds of perfect strokes to win a race
Responsibility – young rowers are responsible for preparing boats before races and workouts, the safety of rowers and boats on the water, and caring for boats and equipment off the water
Leadership – every young rower has a chance to develop leadership skills whether they are rowing in a boat, leading a conditioning session, caring for equipment, or organizing club activities
Lifelong health habits and friendships - Unlike many scholastic sports, rowers can continue to enjoy the physical and social benefits of rowing well into adulthood.
Title IX scholarships are available for women rowers
Nationally, there are 145 women’s collegiate rowing teams in NCAA I – III schools
