Empowering Stories from Behind the Bench SeriesThis month we highlight Siobhan McLaughlin, who has been coaching the sport of rowing for over 25 years. Siobhan was first introduced to rowing by taking Learn To Row through her local parks and rec programming. From there she went on to the OUA championships, and become coach at Ridley College and the Ottawa Rowing Club where her athletes all give her glowing reviews. Siobhan’s journey shows you never know where dipping a toe into a sport experience can take you later in life. Don’t miss her inspiring story.
