If I had a chance to do anything for a living it would be to coach children with special needs how to row. I rowed nine seasons for my high school team and became captain. During the off season I would go to our local lake and teach potential recruits how to row. One thing I will always remember is the face of someone that finally understood what they couldn’t before. There’s a breath taking moment when a boat moves through the water that everyone should experience. Everyone should be able to row, even if they have a disability. Rowing is a sport that anyone is capable of being taught, if only the coach if is willing to put in the time, effort and patience’s. In 2008 rowing was added to the Special Olympics in London, if this job were to come true it could potential make rowing a competitive sport for all. Everyone should be able to experience the moment of pure beauty as the oars go in the water and everyone moves as one. This is not just a sport it is a team building activity that could build a person’s confidence and friendships. This could change anyone with a disability. Indoor rowing machines and indoor rowing pools could be added to school for disabled people. If this dream of mine were ever to happen the possibilities could be endless.
