The summer rowing season is slowly coming to a close and while this means the end of summer vacation, it also means the beginning of a new phase for our rowing program. Some will say it is a transition or rebuilding year and others note the inherent potential that the new athletes have to be successful. What I have seen thus far over the summer is what we are lacking in experience, we are slowly making up for in tenacity. Potential, matching uniforms and inspirational quotes can only take a group so far. What remains to be seen is how we all handle the day-to-day to prepare for the end result. I am really looking forward to the first day of practice to see what kind of standard we set for ourselves and for the remainder of the year.
To the other half of the team that have been taking summer school courses, traveling or just having a much needed break from the tediousness of rowing, we await your arrival. See you soon and happy training.
