High School Spotlight on Rowing – Rowing in high school is a great way to earn a college scholarship as there aren’t as many people competing. Along with being a great way for getting into college, it is a wonderful sport that will allow you to enjoy the water and sight see for a lifetime. It is easy to carry one on your car, or to rent a noncompetitive rowboat in many places.
Here are some Tips for preparing for High School & College Rowing, Preparing for Tryouts, Training Techniques, Drills, Camp Information, Training Programs, and Recruiting Information. As most competitive sports, many participate as youth, fewer participate in high school, less participate in college, and just a few make it to the Olympics or Pros.
The most important thing with any sport is to enjoy it until it doesn’t make sense physically, and so you can pursue your other life goals. Studies show that playing sports can improve lives in many ways, so it is a good idea to play recreational sports if you can. Organized Team Sports can help develop and promote social skills, organization, and leadership skills, and to help resist negative peer pressure. Participants can benefit by gaining long term friendships as well.
