The spring season for Dallas United Crew (DUC) culminates on May 4 -5, in Oklahoma City as they defend four 2018 regional championship titles and vie for the right to move on to the National Championships in Sarasota, Fla. later this summer. To ready themselves for this important event, DUC traveled this month to race against formidable crews from the east and west coast. With strong performances at both the San Diego Crew Classic and the Mercer Sprints in Princeton, NJ, DUC is primed and ready to represent Dallas at Regionals. With more than 100 student athletes from 19 Dallas area schools racing at Regionals, it will be one of the team’s largest contingents ever at this event.

Dallas United Crew hosts monthly free community row and paddle events as a way to encourage more people to try the sport. The next free event is May 11. For more information, visit the team’s website at dallasunitedcrew.org.
