We Are Rowers
Traverse City Triton’s Rowing, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working in partnership with TCAPS Learning, Enrichment & Athletic Program (LEAP), is proud to offer middle school recreational and high school competitive rowing to all student-athletes in greater Grand Traverse area.
Rowing is often described as a symphony of motion. Getting eight people to pull together to accomplish one goal can be a challenge but it is a challenge we work to overcome every day. The level of teamwork, trust and discipline learned from rowing is unmatched by most other sports. Each member must be willing to commit to the team goals and they have to find the determination to push themselves harder and farther than they thought possible in order to achieve them.
To create a culture of unity and trust within the team by teaching our student-athletes the value of teamwork, the importance of determination when pushing for your goals and the rewards that come from working hard for what you want.
To produce a scholastic state championship level team by the spring of 2020.
Our metrics based on-water and erg workout plans are the result of collaboration between top high school, college and masters coaches and our weights workout was designed by one of the most exclusive personal trainers in Traverse City. Together they push athletes to continuously improve and surpass the limits of what was previously thought possible. When combined with our custom tracking software and individual performance analyzer, our coaching staff is able to provide each athlete with goals specific to their fitness level and a clear path to success.
As a team, we pride ourselves on being respectful and inspiring both on and off the water. We believe in holding ourselves accountable for our actions and how they affect the team as a whole, rather than us as individuals. We are committed to supporting each other, showing good sportsmanship and pushing our limits in everything we do. “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
TC Triton’s Rowing believes in promoting safety in youth athletics. Each of our coaches have a deep love of the sport, have completed specialized training programs, attend annual continuing education seminars, have undergone background checks and are SafeSport certified.
