OUR SPORT

Rowing is a low-impact power-endurance sport that uses all major muscle groups of the body. 

 

Our Mission

To develop confidence and competence of Dayton area youth and U23 through achievement in rowing.

 

OUR CULTURE

We work for CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT in all that we do. All work accumulates into ability. Rowing achievement is the responsibility of the instruction provided by the coaching staff, the commitment exercised by every individual rower and the support given by all our families. The team does not define each individual; each individual defines our team. The families and coaches are the foundation that edify and encourage the apex of our organization - our rowers.

 

OUR DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

Learning and teaching how to make boats go faster are an iterative process between rower and coach. We develop physical literacy to control the vertical, lateral, and longitudinal motions of the racing shell. We emphasize learning through sculling because it is a symmetrical movement, which is ideal for growing youth athletes. We use “small boats” to tailor the learning environment of each individual. Each athlete is accountable for his or her progress by measuring, recording and submitting performance data daily. Coaching decisions and selection are based on the performance data and are not up for debate.
