Extending the JP Crickets collection to include the U.S. National Team crest gives the rowing community the exclusive opportunity to align with the national team as part of the Row to Rio campaign.”

“JP Crickets is honored and excited to partner with USRowing,” said Susan Meyer, founder and CEO of JP Crickets. “As a company, our focus is university and sport. Our clients, alumni, students, families and friends love to show support and cheer their team and athletes on. We created our shoes for this very reason. Partnering now with USRowing gives us and the rowing community the opportunity to share together a spirited product while supporting a beloved sport. We look forward to a successful partnership, supporting the association as it trains for Rio 2016, while offering the rowing community a quality product and personalized customer service.”
