GEORGE POCOCK ROWING FOUNDATION
HOW WE DO IT
We bring Erg Ed® into the school physical education classes to give youth the opportunity to learn about rowing in their very own classroom. Then, we help students get connected with opportunities
to row on the water.
Students who want to row can apply for need-based support through the Row to the Future Fund. Students can receive support for team dues, transportation to and from practice, cost of uniform and training gear, and even swimming lessons!
The GPRF creates more opportunities to row by creating more places to row. Supporting boathouses in the region provides more kids the opportunity to get on the water!
JOIN THE EFFORT
We believe kids of all ages and backgrounds deserve an opportunity to row and experience the values of the sport in meaningful ways. Your involvement directly impacts our programs and youth in our communities, today and for generations to come.
