New Safety Launch
Safety launches are critical in rowing. Help us upgrade from our current launch to a wakeless one with higher capacity to ensure the safety and effectiveness of our on-water programming.
Our current engine is regularly maintained, but has high mileage. A reliable engine is critical for athlete safety.
Cost: Starting at $3,000
Rowing mahcines, or ergs, are the primary land training device in rowing. The machines are well-built and incredibly durable. Your gift of the cost of a machine will serve youth participants for 15+ years.
Cox boxes are critical communication devices and also provide useful, real-time performance data during training.
We are commited to the safety of our athletes. PFDs are worn by athletes who are not yet proficient in swimming and also carried in the coach's safety launch.
