Three Rivers Rowing Juniors program is open to any youth from grades 8 through 12. It teaches discipline and physical fitness, and is practically unique among competitive programs in that all team members participate in competition. If a boy or girl practices, he or she will be rowing in a boat. The Wine Tasting fundraisers over the past three years have permitted the TRRA Juniors Boosters to purchase critical equipment and two eight person boats (which cost in excess of $36,000 apiece). These funds allow the program to stay competitive and healthy, and to continue its mission of promoting physical fitness and fighting childhood obesity.
