Who says all of those hours on the ERG don’t pay off? And who says spending all that time on the water on cold, windy days or on hot 100 degree days isn’t worth it? If you ask Parish Episcopal High School senior Brooke Bode, she would have a different tale to tell. Three years of high school rowing have paid off big, as the 18-year old is planning a college career at the University of Texas as part of UT’s elite rowing team.
Dallas United Crew kicks off its Spring 2013 racing schedule on Saturday, February 2nd at the annual Southwest Ergometer Amateur Tournament, or "SWEAT" as it is painfully described by teenaged rowers in our area. An expected 500 athletes, from high school students, college athletes, and adults of all ages, will climb aboard stationary rowing machines, or "ergs", to race against the clock in a two-thousand meter competition.
Dallas United Crew wrapped up its fall racing schedule over the weekend at the nation's second largest regatta. The Head of the Chattahoochee, or, as it's more commonly known "The Head of the 'Hooch' " in Chattanooga, Tennessee hosts more than 5000 junior, collegiate and Masters rowers, plus their estimated 10,000 support staff and cheering squads.
Dallas United Crew, formed in 2002, is the largest coed club rowing team in Texas. Dallas United Crew draws athletes from several high schools around the metroplex. All Dallas United Crew athletes practice and race in the best sweep and sculling equipment possible. Some of our race boats are 60 feet long (as long as a tractor trailer!), cost as much as $30,000, carry up to nine people and weigh as little as 200 pounds.
Our four experienced coaches hold certifications from US Rowing, CPR and First Aid, Cooper Institute and Texas Boating Licenses to ensure the safety of our athletes and to prepare them to compete nationally and later, collegiately. Because of this, we expect a sincere commitment of fundraising, attendance and finances from our athletes and their families.
The new Dallas United Boathouse on White Rock Lake received unanimous approval on November 14, 2012, from the City of Dallas to move ahead with plans for construction of a new boathouse on the North shore of the lake. Dallas United Crew has been working on plans for the boathouse, to seek approval from the city, for a year.
