Continuing our history of rowing with disabilities and Texas Rowing For All, here is an article from our nation’s rowing council, US Rowing. In April 2009, Texas Rowing For All was chosen as a Paralympic Sports Club – Austin by the United States Olympic Committee. This continues to be a huge honor for us, and we’d like to share it with you.
“Unfortunately for people experiencing a disability, involvement in sports and recreation activities may be difficult to achieve on their own. Through sports participation, people with disabilities can experience meaningful activity, heightened self-confidence, independence, a sense of accomplishment and preparation for new challenges in life. These are the goals of the TRC Adaptive Rowing Program.” ~ US Rowing
