BENEFITING: Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation
Oklahoma City's Boathouse District is home to the Oklahoma City National High Performance Center where rowing and canoe/kayak national team athletes from across the United States converge in pursuit of their Olympic dreams.
The commitment to excellence in the Boathouse District inspires an atmosphere of high performance among participants at all levels. The Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation is in partnership with USA Canoe/Kayak and USRowing to advance this high performance environment in order to achieve and sustain medal-winning results in international and Olympic competition.
Team OKC is a grass-roots initiative to support our Olympic Hopefuls as they inspire others by chasing their dreams on the Oklahoma River. We believe a formula of community support and encouragement is the extra fuel that will help our athletes reach the podium.
Initial goals for Team OKC are to support the development of the Team OKC House as well as travel to international competitions. The Team OKC House is located within close proximity to the Boathouse District training facilities and will provide a home for athletes as they relocate to Oklahoma City on their road to the Rio Olympics and beyond.
