BoathouseSports_RedBluePRINCETON, N.J. – USRowing is proud to announce that Boathouse Sports is now the exclusive outfitter of the U.S. Junior National Team, including all racing gear, training gear and apparel in its quest for gold at the 2016 World Rowing Championships in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.  

Founded in 1989 by two-time Olympic rower John Strotbeck, Boathouse Sports is the exclusive partner and outfitter of USRowing’s under 23 and senior national teams, including the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Rowing Teams that will compete this summer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

A Philadelphia-based manufacturer, Boathouse Sports is a Gold Medal Sponsor for the national governing body and offers online and event merchandising, including the sale of licensed USRowing products available to the public.

“We are very excited to establish our relationship with Boathouse,” said Steve Hargis, USRowing Junior National Team Development Coach. “Their roots within the rowing community run deep and will further enhance our efforts to grow the sport. Boathouse understands the needs of our athletes and the attention to detail 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 take pride in the apparel they receive as a result of our new relationship.”

“Rowing continues to grow at a pace many of us back in the 80s 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 every day and the adverse climates they train in. We take great pride in providing U.S. 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 U.S. National Teams.”
