Parents of Durham School Rowing
What do PODs Do?
PODs can row both recreationally and competitively. PODs are a welcoming friendly social group that have a significant impact on raising the profile of and improving the performance of DSBC. They provide both financial (through fund raising etc) and ‘hands on’ (coaching/ supervising etc) support to Boat Club.
PODs meet regularly to discuss future events and fundraising efforts. The next meeting is 14/03/12 in meeting room one at 1800.
