DUC Varsity Girls Racing at Nationals placing 16th in the country
As the school year is upon us, the student athletes at Dallas United Crew will be heading back to the boats at White Rock Lake to begin their training for the rowing fall season.   For youth, rowing is the equalizer in team sports with all athletes working together as one – no individual star player. A little known fact, rowing is growing nationally at 27%, and this emergent sport represents the best opportunity in youth athletics to earn a collegiate scholarship.  
  
For those looking for a new sport, rowing is an alternative that offers students unique benefits. When a student steps into a boat for the first time, their teammates are literally and figuratively in the same boat – learning a new sport together. There’s something transformational as the students work together on balance and synchronization to move together as one cohesive boat not eight individuals, creating a sense of confidence and accomplishment for all. 
 
We equip students for success on and off the water with abundant life lessons learned in a racing shell: accountability, resilience, integrity and perseverance to name a few.  DUC invites students in 6th to 11th to try rowing this fall.  For more information about our fall programming and 8/24 Free Try It Out event, please visit our website at dallasunitedcrew.org or contact alex.binkowski@dallasunitedcrew.org.
