Support Our Team

December 11, 2012

2013 Naming Opportunities Now Available

Looking for the perfect, unique holiday gift for your rower, parent, teammate, coach, fan or supporter? Give them the gift that lasts year-round and supports our U.S. National Team every day!

Gearing up for the next quadrennial, USRowing and the National Rowing Foundation have created an innovative method for the rowing community to engage with the team.

For the first time, you can place a name on the equipment our national team will train and compete with, as a daily reminder that the community is supporting our team. Now everyone has a chance to get involved.

There are many opportunities to be creative. You can put your own name, names of your children, favorite coach or teammate. Put a name in honor or memory of someone special. Put a favorite phrase. One supporter just named a set of oars with “Four More Years!” We expect those oars will be very popular with our athletes.

Initial opportunities are listed below with a minimum donation.

Recognition at USRowing Training Centers and domestic events for the 2013 Calendar Year:

Recognition Name on USRowing Training Center Shirt = $100 minimum

Own a Seat:

  • Name on a USRowing Training Center boat's gunwale next to a designated seat = $250 minimum
Own an Oar:
  • Name placed on oar shaft at a USRowing Training Center/domestic competitions = $500 minimum

It’s easy to make your donation:

Note: You may choose which boat and the location for your name subject to availability. Please contact Beth Kohl at to discuss where best to place your name or to discuss a four-year involvement with the team. This campaign is for individual/team donors only. Contact Beth for additional information on corporate support.

The work for success at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio begins now. We need a strong start to the next quadrennial. There is no time like the present to show our athletes and coaches that we support their commitment to train.

Thank you for your support and GO USA!
