We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit rowing club rooted in the desire to share the joys of learning to row by teaching young people to build healthy minds and bodies through the personal and physical challenge of team sport. Our program includes U23 and Junior Rowing, which is collegiate as well as high school varsity and novice class athletes. Successful rowers develop a deep practical understanding of the power of teamwork. They will understand that even individual success requires a strong team around them. Rowers learn a kind of mental discipline that strengthens them in any endeavor they may undertake.

First of all, why row?
Rowing is the ultimate sport because it provides a plethora of college scholarships, builds strength, endurance, and character, and is a lot safer than other sports offered by schools. According to a website, The College Solution*, crew gives the most scholarships in both D1 and D2 divisions of any sport (more scholarships than men's football). Rowing is a popular sport in the Northeast region of the United States, and colleges will look favorably upon a student by seeing that they row. On the other hand, rowing is a sport that teaches dedication, strength and character through hard work. Rowing is a safe sport for people that are trying to avoid life long injuries, like concussions which are quite frequent in sports such as football. Rowing is without debate one of the best all-around sports.
