Youth Rowing

Our youth rowing program blends urban and suburban participants who practice and race together, giving both groups the opportunity to learn from one another in our own version of a magnet school for rowers.

Past rowers have earned rowing scholarships to college, participated on US Junior National Development Teams, and earned invitations to the prestigious USRowing Youth Nationals.

Current program offerings are listed below, all Riverfront Rowing youth programs are free to residents of Hartford & East Hartford.
