Youth Rowing

Youth Rowing has been a part of the Greater Dayton Rowing since its founding in 1992.

GDRA does not have a continuous year-round youth program.  GDRA provides opportunities for youth through targeted rowing camps.  The next camp is a middle school racing camp from April 8 to May 19, 2024.  You can apply to attend the camp here. 

Rowing is an incredible full-body sport, that pushes participants to achieve things they didn’t know they were capable of.  It’s a sport kids can continue for a lifetime.  Rowing teaches teamwork, goal-setting and self-discipline.  By participating in competitive rowing, rowers will learn to commit their full mental and physical efforts towards achieving their goals.
