The GRP is a program of the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, a non-profit organization whose mission is:

  1. to support and promote participation and excellence in lifelong sports with a special focus on rowing, running, biathlon and Nordic skiing;
  2. to use and teach sustainable practices; and
  3. to protect and manage the surrounding land, lake and trails.

In exchange for coaching, travel support, room & board, GRP skiers are asked to take on projects that contribute to work of the Center (see the projects). If this sounds like work you would enjoy, while taking your rowing to the next level, then you may be a good fit for the GRP. You can read more about the team at their website: You can download our GRP Rowing Application PDF. Questions and applications should be directed towards Troy Howell at
