PARA ROWING FOUNDATION'S SOLE MISSION IS TO FACILITATE A PATH TO COMPETITION FOR ATHLETES WITH DISABILITIES.  

 

PRF CREATES OPPORTUNITY BY REMOVING BARRIERS TO PARTICIPATION FOR PARA ROWERS IN THIS HIGH POWERED, COMPETITIVE, INTERNATIONAL SPORT.

 

We are a non-profit organization offering elite and future elite para rowers unique exposure to world class expertise. Para Rowing Foundation offers opportunity by removing barriers.  PRF has donated equipment, provided trainings at no cost to athletes, developed innovative para rowing equipment, offered sessions with a sports psychologist and more. We also offer training camps exclusively for para rowers where all these elements, and accessibility in accommodations and transportation, are addressed.

Our framework includes para athlete centered intakes, customized equipment and experienced coaches, all designed to identify barriers, maximize potential and promote performance. Our goal is to create a larger pool of highly trained and skilled para rowers.

Para Rowing Foundation was established to support para rowers in the pursuit of excellence. Finances, para experienced coaching, proper equipment and transportation can all take a great deal of energy and attention away from a para rower’s task at hand…TRAINING.

 

PRF works to remove barriers and distractions to allow the para rower to focus fully on developing their highest potential.  

 

PRF is a completely volunteer run 501(c)(3) whose fundraising efforts pass directly on to programming. We would really appreciate your support of these fierce athletes as they work toward gold!
