22 Feb, 2016
Boathouse Sports has become the exclusive sponsor and outfitter of the U.S. junior national rowing team, including all racing gear, training gear and apparel in their quest for gold at the World Championships this summer in Rotterdam.
Boathouse is adding the Junior National Teams to its commitment to the sport of rowing. Boathouse is the current sponsor and outfitter for all of the US Rowing National Teams and the Olympic Team competing this summer in Rio.
Founded in 1989 by two-time Olympic rower John Strotbeck, Boathouse Sports is the exclusive partner and outfitter of US Rowing, the National Teams and the 2016 Olympic rowing teams.
“We are very excited to establish our relationship with Boathouse,” said Steve Hargis, the Director of Junior Rowing. “Their roots within the rowing community run deep and will further enhance our efforts to grow the sport. Boathouse understands the needs of our athlete’s and the attention to details it takes to create a gold medal winning team. Boathouse and its apparel are synonymous with rowing and I am confident the next generation of rowers will come to cherish the apparel they receive as a result of our new relationship.”
“Rowing continues to grow at a pace many of us back in the 80’s would never have thought possible,” said Boathouse Sports Founder and CEO John Strotbeck. “As a former member of the U.S. National and Olympic Teams, I know the hard work and dedication these athletes put in everyday and the adverse climates they train in. We take great pride in providing US rowers with the apparel they need to train and ultimately put more American rowers on the top step of the podium at the Olympics. We’ve got some awesome new products, developed in the last 18 months, that we are releasing this year for all of the National Teams.”
Boathouse Sports is also the official sponsor and outfitter of Ivy League Rugby.
