Mike Knopp brought rowing to Oklahoma City University as the first rowing coach for OCU ever. OCU became the first varsity rowing program in Oklahoma in 2004 after Knopp started the program as a club team in 2000.
Under Knopp’s guidance, OCU has garnered multiple achievements on and off the water. The success of OCU rowers has increased every year during Knopp’s tenure and has included multiple rowing champions and seen OCU rowers compete on the U.S. Under-23 national team.
Knopp has been instrumental in growing the sport in the state. Knopp was also the driving force behind the OCU Head of the Oklahoma Regatta, an annual rowing competition that attracts more than 50,000 spectators and competitors to Oklahoma City each year. This event has been recognized as the “National Regatta of the Year” and was the first U.S. Rowing competition to include night racing.
Other achievements include the designation of the Oklahoma River as an official Olympic training site, the construction of the Chesapeake finish line tower, multiple local, national, and international championship competitions, and the master plan development of the Oklahoma River.

HYGIENE DRIVE 2020

For those who have been incarcerated, basic needs are not always available. Without employment, transportation, housing, or money, starting “fresh” can be difficult – if not impossible. TEEM’s mission is to break those cycles of poverty and incarceration by providing resources and education to those in need. Each year, the community has an opportunity to join this mission by dropping off hygiene products at donation boxes around Oklahoma City. With unemployment rates and sanitation needs increased as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need is even greater this year than in years past, and we hopes to collect 7,300 hygiene products over the two-month time period.
