Celebration of Para Water Sport and Para Cycling Engagement Day

Posted: July 14, 2016

Looking toward the Rio Olympic and Paralympic games we are looking to encourage anyone to take part in the sport of rowing. As part of this Scottish Rowing took part in the Scottish Disability Sport National Celebration of para water sports and para cycling. This fantastic event was a great opportunity for people, that would not necessarily have access to the sport, to try rowing in a fun, safe environment. Finding the right sport for you has the potential to be truly life changing for many people. So for us to be able to be a part of giving people that opportunity, to take those first steps on that journey into sport, is something that we think is very special. Thanks to Scottish Disability Sport for the invitation to take part in this fantastic day.
