Friends of Don Rowing Club

What is Our Purpose?
* to provide for the advancement, promotion and support of rowers at the Don Rowing Club, so that they can continue to develop and excel at rowing
* to foster camaraderie between present and past members of the Don Rowing Club

What Are Our Goals?
* to subsidize training camps and travel expenses for rowing events
* to purchase equipment
* to acknowledge the accomplishments of DRC rowers
* to support the international exchange of rowers

Why are we focusing on the Junior and High School program initially? Today's junior rowers are tomorrow's leaders, and rowing is a fantastic, character-building sport! The DRC is home base for a talented group of top-notch rowers, many of whom also excel at work, study, arts and other sports. The DRC and its coaches play a major role in the growth and development of these impressive all-round kids!

How Can You Help?
* share your resources: financial support is always welcome
* share your enthusiasm: come and support the Club at regattas and events
* share your rowing experience -- either informally at a training session, or at more formal events

Contact us if you'd like to take part in planning and running special events with the Friends!
