Classes and Clinics

Beginners and Experienced:
Juniors Rowing (teens – 14 to 18)

Imagine four or eight crew members, perfectly balanced on the water, perfectly synchronized, gliding across the water so fast it feels like flying. The journey to that experience requires teamwork, concentration, discipline, and athleticism. Our coaching philosophy is meant to develop a life-long love for the sport in a co-ed, accepting, and inclusive environment.

Rowing can be a path to a scholarship at many universities throughout the US, particularly for women. Teen residents of Wyandotte County, Kansas from a low-income background can qualify for tuition-free participation. Contact the club for more information.
