After many years of soccer I have switched my sport to Rowing. This past summer I participated in camps and after a family river trip I decided that rowing was what I wanted to do for high school and possibly college. I love my new team and have found that rowing is more of a teamsport than soccer ever was and more of a family. Please help my new adventure, read more below about the Club.
Founded in 1979, Los Gatos Rowing Club (LGRC) has trained and coached more than 2,500 highschool-level student-athletes from all over the Silicon Valley. This year our club is celebrating 40 years of rowing on the beautiful Lexington Reservoir (located just outside of Los Gatos CA, along HW17).
Over the last four decades, our junior rowers have consistently competed on the national level, and have found much success in bringing home numerous regional, and national titles. Although rowing is a smaller, less visual sport, many of our athletes are recruited to row at top colleges and universities across the country.
As participants of our teams, our club members and athletes, fundraise every fall to keep our equipment in optimal performance conditions. With time, and daily transportation to and from the water, our boats and equipment see a fair amount of wear and tear. We’re in constant need of rotating through, replacing and retiring boats. Proper equipment, including shells (boats), oars, and cox boxes (in-boat microphone/audio), are key to competing at the top level.
