MEC is the short name for Technical University Rowing Club, founded in 1910. It was Hungary’s first colllege-type rowing student sports community.
They place special emphasis on sports according to age characteristics: playfulness , special strengthening exercises to prevent injuries, habituation to independence and responsibility, teamwork and value-based community building. Their mission: combining old rowing traditions and modern knowledge, to build a community according to the ideal of “good student, good athlete”.
They run school holiday programs for kids, age 10-14yrs and they are looking to organise a”kids sprint race” competition later in June with a separate category just for Liteboat boats.
MEC is the first club with a Liteboat boat as they find it perfect for beginners.
