Row New York

Through the discipline of rowing and rigorous academic support, we transform the lives of New Yorkers, regardless of background or ability.

Row New York began in 2002 with the simple idea that competitive rowing paired with rigorous academic support for underserved youth could change the trajectory of their teen years and beyond. We have since taught thousands of young people the sport of rowing, and through it the values of tenacity, focus, teamwork, and confidence. We now serve 230 middle schoolers and high schoolers in our year-round intensive program, and more than 2,200 across all our programs, including PE classes in NYC public middle schools, summer camps, para-rowing for athletes with physical and/or cognitive disabilities, and programs for adults: fitness classes, learn-to-row sessions, training at both recreational and competitive levels, and corporate team-building days.
