AWL Veteran Leaders (for Veterans with disabilities)
AWL Rowing understands the unique challenges and strengths of our nation’s military Veterans with disabilities. Using top of the line equipment tailored to the individual needs of the athletes, we help build camaraderie and bolster confidence in Vets through rowing, both indoor and on the water. The AWL Veteran Leaders program is coached by Vets and upholds the standards set by the military. From ensuring things are ‘dress right dress’ to never leaving anyone behind (other than the competition of course), AWL Veteran Leaders have your back. (learn more)
