Anyone with athletic high school age kids........Rowing?

Postby meisen on Mon May 18, 2009 6:30 pm

As some of you know, I am the head junior rowing coach at Mendota rowing club. We are one of the local rowing clubs here in Madison. We are currently looking to recruit 15-20 8th-10th graders (moving into 9th-11th respectively) for our summer learn to row program. It's really a fun time and a great way to get your kid outside and doing something on the water this summer. Taller athletes tend to excel however everyone is welcome. I think we have assembled a great group of kids in the past couple of years and we race successfully all over the Midwest. Rowing with us can even lead to some kids going on to compete in college. Not only have we put 2-3 graduates onto Division one teams yearly (as well as several to NCAA D2-3 and club programs) but we have had three girls get full or partial scholarships to row in the past five years! The summer program is $150 for an eight week course and is catered towards kids with NO prior experience. It begins June 8th and runs through the end of July.

Anyway, if you are looking for a summer activity for your kids or know someone who is, dont hesitate to get in touch with me. More information can be found here:
