There are many opportunities to volunteer for the Canisius High School Rowing Club. Without the help of our volunteers, the program would not be as successful or as rewarding for our rowers. There is no experience necessary to volunteer! Come out and meet your son's rowing friends and other parents -- get involved -- many hands make light work!
