    to making it to the U19 National Team and well beyond.

    “College Recruiting 101”

    Speaker: Bill Manning
    When should you start contacting coaches? Which results do you share? What
    can your current coach do for you? Should mom or dad actually give your dream
    school a call? The college recruiting process can be stressful and as a rower in high
    school, you probably have many questions. We’re bringing in an expert, Princeton
    University’s Bill Manning, to tell you all about the do’s and don’ts of being
    recruited.

    “Big Boats, Bigger Business”

    Rowing may be about teamwork, but who says you can’t be your own rowing
    boss? Hear from people who founded companies whose stuff you may already
    own about how they did it and what it took. From humble beginnings to name
    recognition, they will share their business insights and most inspiring advice.
