Provide an opportunity for underserved Atlantic City youth to develop leadership skills, confidence and personal growth through rowing.
The FREE program will provide a summer enrichment opportunity for underserved Atlantic City middle school students interested in developing the skills of rowing. This team-oriented sport will teach skills participants can use throughout their lives. The program will focus on fun, development and teamwork as well as the importance of exercise and nutrition. Participants will have access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, experienced Stockton University rowing coaches, current Stockton rowing athletes, an athletic trainer and lifeguard. In addition, participants will receive breakfast daily, healthy snacks and if needed, transportation to and from the Atlantic City boathouse.
