Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Friends of Milton Crew is to offer programs that broaden exposure to the benefits of rowing among the communities surrounding the Neponset estuary.
Crew’s success demands personal responsibility, goal setting, dedication and accountability to the greater whole – skills also essential to our community at large. FOMC rowers learn the necessity of teammates pulling together to transcend their individual strengths and weaknesses.
Benefits and Opportunities of Rowing With Us
We use a competitive racing schedule to instill the traits and skills necessary for success. Each student-athlete learns the value of discipline, determination, and teamwork. They learn that individual success depends on the team’s performance. Further, they learn the value of a healthy, active lifestyle and increase their physical stamina, flexibility and coordination. The athletes increase their self-esteem by continually testing and expanding their limits. Finally, they will make lifelong friends and have FUN!
