Open House at 2700 W. Girard

On March 1, 2014 PCR welcomed friends, family, and neighbors to our new off-water home.

This winter PCR signed a lease to secure indoor training space and an office/study area.  This newly acquired facility will allow PCR to offer greatly expanded academic support services, provide a permanent space for our winter training and middle school program, allow for additional family involvement, and finally give us a place to call home.

How the new facility will impact PCR programming

Rowing

·      Maintain a high quality training facility for winter training or rainy day workouts and improve team fitness and competitiveness

·      Promote space for all student-athletes to gather and participate in activities simultaneously to promote team unity and cohesion

·      Continue to operate Middle School Program without scheduling conflicts and changing locations

·      Conduct additional learn-to-row programming to expose more students to the sport and PCR

Development/ Sustainability

·      Utilize new office space to meet with parents and continue to develop the Booster Club

·      Host fundraising events onsite

·      Hire interns/ co-ops from local universities to help implement various aspects of programming (not possible previously due to lack of office space)

Nutrition

·      Host more frequent nutrition workshops

·      Broaden range of healthy snacks offered (including fresh fruit) using new food storage and preparation facilities

Enrichment

·      Schedule guest speakers to assist in leadership education and teamwork on site
