Our Youth Rowing team uses rowing as a means to develop new skills, learn how to work together, and challenge academic and athletic potential. All youth, grades 6-12 are welcome to participate.

The Renton Junior Programs offer year-round (Fall Season, Winter Conditioning, Spring Racing Season, Summer Training Camps) rowing opportunities for middle school and high school students in Renton and the surrounding area. We are committed to providing access to and excellence in the sport of rowing, and we foster individual development and achievement through a range of program offerings. Whether you need an introduction to the sport’s fundamentals or want to compete at the highest level, we have a program for you. Click on the Sign Up page in the left hand column to get registered today! The focus is on learning the basics of the sport and then competing in local regattas. The youth team uses rowing as a means to develop new skills, learn how to work together, and challenge academic and athletic potential.

Our team aims to provide full support to help remove the barriers that limit participation in rowing; lack of funds, inability to swim and lack of transportation. Beyond learning how to row as part of a team in a healthy environment, Renton Rowers will have access to academic support and mentor-ship, including tutors and pre-practice study hours. Academic support and community building are at the core of our team. Read more about Youth Rowing Scholarships here.

Our rowing coaches will support and guide youth as they learn to work together, set and achieve goals, and overcome challenges. The social, physical, and emotional benefits of rowing are boundless: a) as one of the most physically demanding sports, rowing enhances fitness and supports lifelong health and wellness; b) often called “the ultimate team sport,” rowing is ideal for instilling notions of persistence and self-efficacy; and c) because of its historical ties to universities, rowing is steeped in a college-going culture and rich educational networks. Through rowing, our athletes will challenge their potential on the water, in school, and in life, thereby contributing to a stronger, healthier community.

 

"It's a great art, is rowing. It's the finest art there is. It's a symphony of motion. And when you're rowing well, why, it's nearing perfection." George Yeoman Pocock
