Riverfront Recapture’s Community Rowing Program serves more than 550 people annually and is one of the largest and most successful community rowing programs in New England. Recreational and competitive classes, including the opportunity to compete on nationally recognized racing teams, are offered to everyone from pre-teens to retirees.
Adult and youth rowing classes teach both new and experienced rowers, while racing teams compete (and medal!) at national regattas. College students improve their skills and fitness over the summer, individuals with physical disabilities and/or visual impairments participate in an Adaptive Program and beginners and experienced teens can learn from College Coaches in our 2-day or 4-day clinics.
Whether you’re 13 years old or 73 years young, if you can swim and want to try something new, then we have a place for you!
