Identifying athletes with the potential to successfully represent the United States at the World Rowing Championships and Olympic Games is a major objective of the USRowing National High Performance Center.
Oklahoma City hosts several ID camps throughout the year to determine the ability of potential athletes and conducts ongoing talent assessment of both U23 and senior athletes in lightweight and openweight categories. The goal is not only to develop new elite athletes from the pool of existing young rowers but to recruit athletes from other sports to rowing.
Our team is made up of athletes dedicated to the pursuit of the highest level of excellence in the sport of rowing. Our goal is to earn the honor of competing for our country internationally and bring prestige to ourselves, the United States and the Oklahoma City National High Performance Center. We champion each other as teammates and challenge each other as competitors. Our dedication, perseverance and drive embody the vision for the Oklahoma City National High Performance Center as we strive to reach our goals.
Our mission is to develop world-class athletes, and to ensure a clearly defined pathway for excellence in the sport of rowing.
