Rose City Rowing Club offers summer rowing programs
 

Portland, Oregon – In recent years, rowing in the Pacific Northwest has expanded on a grand scale. The Rose City Rowing Club will work with teens (7th through collegiate athlete) in a summer program for rowing at three levels.

“This is a great opportunity to spend time on the river,” said Nick Haley, head coach for Rose City Rowing Club. “This is great way to learn or build skills in rowing. It’s a great team sport with many college scholarship opportunities.”

About Rose City Rowing Club
Rose City offers several rowing programs that serve various youth populations in the Portland area. With a centralized location in downtown Portland and easy access to public transportation, rowing is more accessible to more of Portland's youth than ever before.

Rowing is an extremely teamwork-oriented sport that requires consistent dedication from each team member. The kids learn how to set goals and work every day toward achieving them. They can grow into strong, fit, well-balanced athletes, with minimal risk of injury. We offer classes for middle and high school students and are progressive in our creation and operation of alternative programs and events.

The athletes learn positive life lessons about teambuilding and cooperation. Rowing is a life sport and participants can use what they learn both on and off the water for the rest of their lives. In fact, many former junior rowers have returned to Portland and are now teaching and coaching the next generation of student athletes.

Rowing is an alternative sport for many kids who have not found their niche in traditional sports in school. Rose City helps augment the sports options available to kids in high school, providing an outlet for people who otherwise might not have participated in high school athletics. In addition, rowers are exposed to significant college recruiting opportunities.
