Jack & Jill Learn to Row

We partnered with the Gastonia-Piedmont Chapter of Jack & Jill to introduce the sport of rowing to their teens on the morning of Saturday, 9/21. The weather was perfect and we couldn't've asked for better water!

11 teens started indoors on the ergs learning the basics of the rowing stroke and reviewing rowing shells on land before getting out on the water in two 8+s. After a couple of hours learning the stroke, we capped off the session with a few short "races" from buoy to buoy by 4s.

We had 5 volunteer seat fillers and 2 coxswains from our Youth team to help Jack & Jill through the steep learning curve that rowing has. Our Masters volunteered on shore at dock to assist with launching and return recovery. Thank you to all of our volunteers!

Looking forward to partnering with Jack & Jill of Gastonia-Piedmont in the future!
