About Us
Why A Rowing Club?

We believe in building life skills like teamwork, determination and physical fitness while exercising character traits that encourage young adults to passionately pursue personal achievement.
Rowing is also known to provide scholarships and recruitment opportunities to the top Universities in the world such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton to name a few.

We strive to provide a great way to get involved in the community and meet new friends while building skills and reaching fitness goals. Physical fitness, learning new skills and achieving goals have an incredible impact on all aspects of people's lives. We believe rowing can make people feel better about themselves and help establish meaningful relationships.
