Corporate Team Building

Rowing in a boat with a team can teach you the very things your office needs to learn to be a better team and accomplish good work. Gather your colleagues for an inspiring team building experience that will challenge them, build trust and lead to positive change. Your team building event may also include catered breakfast and lunch, t-shirts, or happy hour.

What to Expect

  • On-land and on-the-water introduction to the sport of rowing by highly trained coaches
  • Facilitated team-building activities and discussions
  • Half- or full-day sessions available


  • Pocock Rowing Center
  • Renton Rowing Center

All proceeds raised from corporate team building events go to support the larger work of the Pocock Foundation. To inquire about corporate rowing opportunities, please contact Mary Richardson, Corporate Rowing Coordinator, at or (206) 686-6390.

“We had fun, we learned to work together differently, and we have a lot to talk about that’s helping bring the team together in different working groups. In terms of meeting my expectations for the event it certainly hit the mark. It’s giving me plenty to work with as conversations starters but it also has the benefit of adding new stories to our tribal history.”

Russell King, Principal Software Engineering Manager
