Team Row, Juliio Viyella President
Team Row, a Miami-based organization dedicated to the growth of the sport of rowing and its benefits throughout the community, is a member organization of USRowing, the sports national governing body, and a member of its Task Force on Affordability, Accessibility, and Diversity. The organization proposes to utilize the Marine Stadium as a venue to conduct community-based rowing programs during non-peak hours (Monday through Friday). Such use would not only serve the demand for sports opportunities and youth development in many of the Downtown/Little Havana/Coconut GRove neighborhoods, but will balso not interfere with weekend activity and events at the Stadium.
