The girls waving goodbye... for NOW!! Girls Row Stockton will be back for the fall season on August 7!!
We finished our summer camps on Friday, July 27 with an exhibition row from our girls. It was unbelievable - the scullers have gone from incredible nerves in a quad:
To spending some time in singles...
To really becoming a team!
What a day! We had time for a circuit before getting out on the water, and then a quick warm-up before we started doing pieces with doubles and singles. The important thing to remember about sculling is that even though we sometimes row in just one boat, we are ALWAYS a team. We represent Girls Row Stockton - a sculling team that wants to work hard, go fast, and grow strong as a team. Looking at the picture above, we might look like a bunch of different boats trying to compete against one another, but we have to work as a team to make all of this happen!
When we are on a team, we feed off of one another - we can find our best selves when our community is there to support our search. As competitors, we can push each other to achieve greater things than we thought possible - but only if we, ourselves, are putting in that effort.
Who's excited for Girls Row Stockton!?
