Junior Competitive Programming

Austin Rowing Club’s Junior Team is the oldest youth rowing program in Austin and one of the fastest teams in Texas. We offer two Junior Rowing programs: Competitive and Recreational. These programs are uniquely designed to fit the goals and schedules of young rowers.

If you are interested in discovering your potential as a rower, working hard, making friends from all over Austin, being part of a team, traveling and competing in local, regional, and national regattas, and most importantly having fun, then we invite you to join our Competitive Program. If your child is looking to get in shape and develop skills in a new and exciting sport, we welcome you to join our Recreational Program!
