And So It Begins- There's Still Time to Join!

The spring 2017 rowing season is underway! Experienced rowers hit the ground running (literally) or erging today, and some took to the water to help some new rowers learn the ropes. There is still time for new rowers to come out and try the sport, since we'll be taking new registrations all the way through the end of January. Maybe you're currently playing basketball, or another winter sport that doesn't end until February. If that's the case, I'd still like to find a way to give you the chance to try rowing. I truly believe that, while many students become year-round rowers, it's also a great sport to help you improve athletically for the multisport lifestyle. Our training embodies the meaning of teamwork, and we will push you to your limits aerobically and anaerobically. Come see for yourself. Any high school students interested in trying the sport can contact Head Coach, Mike Smith via email or phone- 813-786-0337 (c).

Welcome to the Trident Family- Spring Season Begins Jan. 11th

Have you tried other sports, only to find yourself on the sidelines watching others play? You trained just as hard, or harder and were limited in opportunities? Or maybe you've been looking for ways to get involved and make more friends, or to challenge yourself? Whatever the case, you've come to a place that can help you, and we welcome you with open arms. 

Rowing is a unique sport in which each individual commits their own strength, will-power, work-ethic, and personality to the entity of their crew. Nine individuals join together in one system of power and grace to cross the line before the other crews. Within a team dedicated to this concept, there is a place and an opportunity for everyone to succeed.

On Saturday, and during the entire week of 1/9-1/13, we are holding free learn to row sessions for high school students. We encourage you to come on out and see what it's all about! If you can't make one of these sessions, no problem- Come to any practice to talk to our rowers and coaches to find out more!

Dates and times: 1/7- 8-10am; 1/9- 1/13 4:15-6:15pm.

Location: 7117 US 301 N. at Harney Park.

Enrollment for New Rowers: Open through the end of January.
