It requires so much mental and physical strength, endurance, and cohesion as a team. What made you want to become a rower... I walked onto the novice team my freshman year. I wanted to become a rower because I needed a way to stay active since I wasn't playing college volleyball, and my former teammate suggested that I try rowing. I was hooked as soon as I got in a boat for the first time.
