Parents and families of GVSU Rowers,
I would like to take just a moment to invite you to our annual Family Weekend festivities! If you are curious to see and explore this interesting new sport your daughter or son has recently joined, this is the perfect time to do so!
Please join us at the Grand Valley Boathouse on Saturday October 6, from 11-1. We will have our equipment on display and you can even get in a boat and experience first-hand what rowing is all about! Our Rowing Training Center (RTC) which is located on Lake Michigan Drive, across from campus will be open as well and you are more than welcome to stop in, learn what an erg is and see where your child will spend a lot of their time in the coming months! We will be serving light refreshments throughout the day and apparel for sale so you can support GVSU Crew at all of our upcoming fall regattas!
We are also excited to welcome Sarah Zelenka ’09, who will be speaking this year. Sarah is an alumnae of the Grand Valley Rowing program and competed in the 2012 London Olympics in the Women’s Pair, placing 4th. Our program is so proud of her accomplishments and we cannot wait to have her back at the boathouse!
The coaches, staff and all of Grand Valley Rowing is excited to meet and talk with you and we can’t wait to see you on October 6!
