Varsity Rowing Program


The Varsity Rowing Program is part of the RRCMN Juniors division and offers a year round program for grades 7 to 12. The program includes competitive fall, spring and summer seasons as well as a winter conditioning program. Unlike many sports, you can start rowing at any age (11+) and be successful. To join the Varsity Team, rowers must be dedicated and have a desire to excel on the water. Advancing from Junior Varsity to the Varsity team is a decision made by the athlete, parents, and coaches. Any questions regarding the varsity team can be directed to Coach Andrew

The Rochester Rowing Club strives to keep dues as minimal as possible while maintaining excellent staff and good equipment. We have bench-marked other sports and found that RRC continues to be one of the best sports values in the region. In addition to dues, we are dependent on the wonderful generosity of our parents and others to keep our budget balanced and to meet the growing demands for equipment and coaches. RRCMN offers payment plans and scholarships to help with the cost.

Cold Weather Rowing

RRC has continued rowing in one-person boats and bundling up as the weather gets colder.  The Adult Team is organizing a competition dubbed the Double-Headed Goose for Saturday morning, October 24.  Once it gets too dark and too cold to row, we'll take a break and then gear up for indoor winter training.
