Carlos Dinares enjoys every minute he spends with the University of Washington Men’s crew team. Carlos started volunteering his time at the University of Washington, beginning in the fall of 2006. Carlos brought his unabashed love for the sport to the University of Washington boathouse every day and soon found his niche: he became the doctor of pain: the coordinator of land workouts with his revolutionary rowing machine. In June of 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 the UW won the Ten Eyck trophy, awarded to the team with the most points at the IRA Championship Regatta.
For Carlos Dinares it is impossible to spend time at the Conibear boathouse without realizing that the University of Washington Men’s Crew Team trains with more intensity, belief and devotion in how hard work and a very good system translates into excellence. It is a place where every single rower has gravitated toward the growth mind-set. For Carlos Dinares it is difficult to exaggerate the power of this Team.
Carlos Dinares believes that the rowers get to the Team as good rowers but with a different mind-set. For Carlos it is the development and mentor work of freshmen coach Lucas Mcgee with the supervision and leadership of the Men’s Head coach Michael Callahan that makes the difference. You can feel the belief in the transformational power of good and hard work. Carlos Dinares is convinced that the top performance on the University of Washington Men’s Team emerges from mind-set. Carlos believes that the key task of the coaches is to encourage the adoption of a growth in mind-set. When that kind of philosophy becomes embedded in the culture, the consequences can be amazing.
At the University of Washington Men’s Crew Team there is a huge teamwork from the coaches to the rowers to do well. Doing well is part of their culture.
I’m proud to be part of this Team! Go Huskies!
