ABOUT THE TEAM: Our first season was the Spring of 2015. Rowing is a Co-Ed Club Sport with spring and fall seasons. Rowers can join whichever season works best around their other activities. Rowing is easy to learn. It mainly requires a strong work-ethic, determination and team-spirit. With the right attitude, anyone can learn to row; with perseverance, he/she can build the physical strength and ability to compete. Unlike many other sports which require elite training from a young age, rowing is something many high school athletes could easily continue to do at a collegiate level. The team rows out of Contestoga Campground on the Grand River off Leonard Road, 8 miles East of SLHS. Indoor training is held in Room 6 at Ferrysburg City Hall on Ridge Road.

FUNDRAISING: Our program exists only because of generous private and corporate donations. We rely on continued support to keep the team afloat. Funds raised go towards purchasing equipment such as rowing shells, oars, rigging, shoes, speakers, life-jackets, tools, trailers, tents, motor boats, indoor rowing machines, etc. Each high school rower pays a participation fee per season to help with operating costs such as rent, insurance, fuel, mileage and coaching expenses. If you would like to make a tax deductible financial contribution to our team,you may do so using our online payment system or buy mailing a check. Please email the team using the form below for more information!
THANK YOU: A big thank you to our generous donors! The program met our initial goal to get the team started and now has a brand new customized team trailer for hauling shells to regattas, two used 8+ shells, two used 4+ shells, a zodiac inflatable w/ outboard motor and a 12 ft. aluminum boat w/ outboard motor.
