Rowing Community Gets New Online Social Network

Share Article

Recently launched online social network for rowers, coxswains, race officials, parents, and supporters. The new online community allows people to meet each other, keep in touch, read up on the latest rowing news around the world, and also offers resources for those who want to learn more about rowing.

I anticipate all ages utilizing the website and especially encourage current rowers in high school and college age brackets to do so. In addition I expect a side group will be the club contingency across the US. They should use it as a way to find potential athletes and potential races.

New online social network, Rowers Room, establishes a new venue for rowers, coaches, coxswains, parents, race officials, and supporters to find each other, stay in touch, and exchange information about the popular sport. The rowersroom.com social network is a departure from the current networking opportunities available to the rowing community.

"Unique to this site, and what separates us from what is out there is the social networking aspect of the site," says Matthew Treat, owner of Rowers Room. "No where else can you chat, blog and post in a 'live' environment with others from around the world. News from the rowing world is updated around the clock. In addition, as the site grows, new features including a public and personal calendar system will be available, online polls, etc."

Treat developed the website with the hope of helping people build their rowing careers, or reinvigorate old rowing careers, encouraging new members to explore all the opportunities that the rowing world has to offer. In addition to networking, members can browse event calendars, search classifieds for rowing equipment, read about the history of rowing and even add their own rowing lingo to the rowing glossary provided on the site.

"I anticipate all ages utilizing the website and especially encourage current rowers in high school and college age brackets to do so. In addition I expect a side group will be the club contingency across the US. They should use it as a way to find potential athletes and potential races."

Rowers Room offers free registration and Treat encourages his members to provide their input on features that would make the site even more dynamic and informative.
