Junior Programming

Austin Rowing Club’s Junior Team was founded in 1989, making it the longest running youth rowing program in Austin. Over the last 30 years, Austin Rowing Club’s competitive junior team has performed at the national level, attended races across the country, sent rowers on to top college programs, and sparked lifelong love of the sport.  ARC’s junior recreational team, provides the same quality coaching as the competitive program for rowers that do not want to make the commitment required to compete with the varsity team. Austin Rowing Club hosts three official USRowing regattas a year. The Head of the Colorado (aka Pumpkinhead), The Heart of Texas, and the Texas Rowing Championships.

As we look towards our next 30 years, we are dedicated to continuing our growth as a program and bringing diverse members of the community from all over city together to train, race, and experience the beautiful Austin from Lady Bird Lake.
