The 2020 Spring VIII Series

Mar 27, 2020

When rowing seasons were cut short, we heard from coaches, student athletes and parents alike that continuing training as a team was of the utmost importance.

Rowing for Runners

Oct 03, 2019
Rowing is a “leg sport," working the quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings and calves. Runners can benefit by incorporating more rowing into their training.
