Executive Director’s Report
Dear TRRA Community,
In the last 2 weeks, over 200 rowers, paddlers, coaches and volunteers took part in our annual Spring Safety Meetings. With the on-water season on the horizon, this level of investment in safety will go a long way towards ensuring we are as safe as possible throughout the year. Thank you to everyone who has participated in a Safety Meeting to date and a reminder that everyone should review the Safety Protocols & Procedures handbook before going on the water that can be found on the Safety Page of the TRRA website.
It is an exciting time of year and our campuses are starting to get busier by the day. We are looking forward to another great year on the water and continuing to move our programs forward with each practice and stroke.
Be well and be safe!
TRRA's mission is to develop and deliver safe, sustainable, and inclusive programs and events that teach and promote the benefits of rowing and paddling to our diverse community.
