Port Jefferson Rowing Club (PJRC) is a competitive rowing club specifically designed to build life skills within its members. Through its practices on and off the water, PJRC develops strong communal bonds between members who are always striving to break through their own personal barriers. We race and train for personal growth.
Personal growth and development of character. We accomplish this through rowing on the water and promoting the break through of personal barriers all under the guidance of healthy leadership. Many times when a junior breaks through enough barriers they earn a scholarship to prestigious universities around the country.
Many times masters rowers find that there's less opportunities later in their careers. Once they were competitive and were fueled by the comradery of team sports, maybe in their college years, but lately the opportunities for that same experience are lacking. Our adult members join to be challenged again in a healthy environment where they can interact with like minded people.
