Winter Training Trip - Austin, Texas

Winter season
For invited competitive rowers, strongly recommended for HP youth and open to adult rowers

The highlight of the winter season is the annual training trip to Austin, Texas where the team gets to take a break from indoor training and enjoy warm temperatures while rowing on Lady Bird Lake. The goal of the trip is to foster team spirit and prepare the rowers for their spring championship season.

The team stays in the heart of downtown Austin at the Omni Hotel just a short run or bike ride away from the Texas Rowing Center where athletes row 2-3 times per day.  During down time, rower's take advantage of Austin's booming culinary scene choosing to dine out together as a team and excursions such as going to Barton Springs to cool-off on a hot day.
