Second Learn to Row Day Added – Sunday May 27 2018

Athletes and parents: Please let your friends and family know that we have added a second free Learn-to-Row event, on Sunday May 27 from 9 AM to noon.

The team usually hosts one introductory event each year, but our April 15 occasion is already full and interest from our curious community remains very high. Our mindful coaching staff stepped up to make sure that any middle-schooler who is interested will have the chance to spend some time out on our beautiful Bay.

Thanks coaches!
