Greg Wood | Head Coach

Our Executive Director and Head Coach, Greg, first began rowing while attending Texas A&M Galveston, and like many of our rowers, immediately fell in love with the sport. As a college student and athlete, Greg then founded the Texas A&M University Crew team, which has been a thriving and winning club ever since.  Greg has traveled the world using rowing to teach team building and leadership training to companies around the world and then founded a youth-focused rowing organization in Texas. Through those experiences, Greg learned that building and growing teams is his true strength and passion.

Whether developing Juniors rowing programs, teaching team building and leadership, or coaching Masters’ rowers, Greg loves to use his passion to help each rower achieve their full potential both on and off the water.

Jack Mischak | Assistant Coach

Jack is a Sculler Alumni that has lived the rower’s dream of being recruited to row in college.  Jack rowed 4 years at Scullers, then 4 years at La Salle University, a D1 school located on Boathouse Row in Philadelphia, PA. Recently finishing college with a Marketing, Business, and Leadership degree, he returns to Scullers to bring his passion and love for the sport to our athletes.
