It was a great start to this year's Learn to Row camp. Nineteen young athletes signed up for the weeklong program - more than enough to fill 4 quads. An impressive turnout with a good balance in ages and gender. While the first day is focused on terminology, equipment, becoming acquainted with the erg, the coaches worked hard to get in some water time.
HTCC is headed to Florida!! Luke, Erik, Dan, and Duff are on their way to Sarasota this weekend to race against the nation's top competition at the USRowing Youth National Championship.

Today's Middle School Recruitment event was a huge success. More than 50 students signed up to receive more information about HT Crew and 40 picked up registration forms for our Learn To Row camp. It was the best response to date for this annual event and all credit belongs to the enthusiasm of the many HT rowers who participated. It was quite a turnout. At the event, HT rowers visit the 8th and 7th grade lunches at Rohrer Middle School where they are available to answer questions about the sport, promote the benefits of crew and engage the curious with a friendly erg race. Below are some photos of the event.
