Youth Rowing

QCRC offers Youth recreational and competitive high school rowing programs for ages 12–18 for all local public and private schools within the Cincinnati area.

Youth rowers will learn the basics of the sport and the art of racing. QCRC teaches both sweeping and sculling and all rowers start rowing in a 4+ or 4X (quad) boat. Rowers need to complete the basic Learn to Row program first before joining the team. Once they graduate, they can continue with our recreational rowing or competitive programs.


QCRC Youth Competitive Rowing

QCRC rowers learn the best sculling and sweeping technique in an environment that is respectful, competitive, and positive. Rowers will develop excellent life skills that will help them in their personal and professional lives. For many of our rowers, scholarship opportunities in college will be available since recruiters are looking for athletes with good technique skills that come from good coaching staff.
