Athletes are trained to race in distance events in the fall and sprints in the spring. They are expected to work hard and continually progress in their rowing technique and fitness ability. Passion, drive, dedication, and a team-player mentality is pivotal to the success of the individual rower and the team as a whole. These are the traits coaches are looking for in their athletes.
