OUR FOUNDER – LUKE WALTON
UNWAVERING COMMITMENT TO BUILDING BETTER STUDENT ATHLETES AS THEY PREPARE TO ROW IN COLLEGE
“I am the oldest Walton son and the first to be recruited in our family, so if anyone knows how intimidating and confusing the process can be for athletes and their parents to navigate, it’s me. After more than a decade working with student athletes, developing their rowing skills, and successfully and consistently guiding them through the recruiting process to admission at the college of their dreams, I decided to expand Rower Academy and its available resources to help athletes like you. Rowing and the rowing community have given me so much over the years. I have learned invaluable life lessons and skills, traveled all over the world, and built an incredible network. All of it started with recruitment and admission to the University of California, Berkeley.
I want as many young athletes as possible to have an experience and trajectory like mine. Rower Academy exists to equip you with the information, tools, and training you need to successfully navigate the recruiting process, to put you in the best position of realizing your dream of rowing in college, and to become the very best student athlete you can be. It’s time to ditch your fears, to embrace your dream, and to set yourself on a course to meet and exceed your life goals. Join us at Rower Academy today.”
