Greater Dayton Rowing Association

The Greater Dayton Rowing Association Youth Program has provided rowing opportunities to students since 1992. Rowing is a low-impact power-endurance sport that uses over 90% of the body’s muscle groups. Training plans are tailored to each age group. We are a four-season sport that operates six days per week with scheduling flexibility to accommodate all levels.   We also offer competitive and non-competitive opportunities to row.  Our youth program is funded by our membership fees and Booster fundraising efforts.
