I haven't been rowing for that long but, as soon as I tried it I immediately fell in love with this sport. It is a physical and mental game. As much as one may think it's a solo sport, it's not. When you think you can't do it, your team members are there to support you. You work together in a boat to get it down the river. You move, think, act and breathe like one when you are on the boat. You are calm and relaxed.
I am currently on the Novice Women's team of about 23 girls. I am a freshman at Los Gatos High School. I love rowing both port (left) and starboard (right) and love 8 seat and 7 seat the most!
With a donation, you would be helping contribute to new equipment and supplies to better help us at reggatas and practices. Also, more specific to my team and me, if I raise the most money out of the people on my team, I can get private lessons with my coach. If my team raises the most money out of Varsity Women, Varsity Men, and Novice Men, then we can get a laser tag party! My goal is to raise $1000. Hopefully you will be willing to donate! Thank you!
