Kyle Stanley

Kyle Stanley began rowing his first week of high school and hasn't looked back. After first discovering rowing as a freshman on the first year of St. Francis de Sales High School's rowing team in Toledo, OH, where he rowed for 8 seasons, he attended Marquette University, and immediately knew that he wanted to remain rowing and joined Marquette Crew. During his 4 years on the team, Kyle competed in the team's top lightweight boats and spent a year as President of the club.

 

After spending summers coaching various rowing camps, Kyle rejoined Marquette Crew as a coach in 2014, coaching the women's team for 3 years before moving back to Ohio to take over as Head Coach for Great Miami Crew in the winter of 2017. In the Fall of 2018, Kyle moved to Columbus to take on the challenge of coaching the Men for Westerville Crew.

Trevor, a Columbus native, started his rowing career while in high school at Dublin Crew and continued into college at the University of Cincinnati. Following his time rowing at the University of Cincinnati, Trevor began coaching in 2000 after moving to Toledo, Ohio. Over the last 20 years he was the head coach for Notre Dame Academy, Anthony Wayne, and founder/head coach of Black Swamp Rowing. Most recently before joining the Westerville Crew staff, he was the Women's Rowing head coach at the University of Colorado. 

 

Trevor has had numerous athletes medal at Scholastic and Youth nationals over his years of coaching in addition to many graduates of his programs who have gone on to row at collegiate programs.

Derek Blazo

Program Director

Derek, originally from New Jersey, started rowing in college at The Ohio State University in 1990. Influenced by some of his early coaches (Tim, Jimbo and Brian), he developed what would become a lifelong passion for the sport. After moving to Westerville in 1998, he found the WRC rowing program and has been involved as a volunteer, a coach and a board member ever since. 

He currently also sits on the USRowing Referee Committee representing the Midwest Region where he has a wonderful opportunity to help support and expand the sport on a national level. 

Inspired by his daughter, Tatiana, a very successful Westerville Crew varsity and then division 1 rower, Walter started his career as a competitive master rower in 2008. As a past squash coach and teaching pro, he was glad to help out at Westerville Crew. Since then, he has coached the novice and the varsity women as well as being head coach for the novice men. Even though Walter started as a sweeper, he spends more time sculling his single,  and he would love to inspire more masters to learn how fun sculling can be.
