Welcome to the Greater Dayton Rowing Association
Here in the heart of Dayton, GDRA has been providing our community with access to rowing since 1992. Located alongside the Great Miami River at Island MetroPark, we provide sculling and sweep programs for the entire Miami Valley region.
Whether you are 12 or 80, it is never too early or too late to begin rowing. Our Learn-to-Row program is designed to introduce someone with no experience to the sport, and then let them take it as far, or as fast, as they want to go. We look forward to seeing you on the water!

The Greater Dayton Erg Sprints will be held on January 18, 2014 at the Vandalia Rec Center.
The Charlie Doyle Memorial Regatta, on October 4, 2014, brings in nearly 1000 athletes to the Dayton area to kick off the fall head race season. Teams race under a pedestrian bridge and only a few feet beneath spectators' feet as they speed to the finish. Island Park is the perfect venue for coaches, athletes and spectators alike!
Directions: The Greater Dayton Rowing Association is located at Island MetroPark, 124 East Helena Street, Dayton, OH 45404. [Find us on Google Maps]
