As Madison's oldest community rowing club, our members come from all walks of life. Rowing out of the Bernard-Hoover boathouse on beautiful Lake Mendota, we offer opportunities to both sweep and scull. We have programs for rowers interested in high level competition, those new to rowing, and for those that fall in between.

We believe rowing should be accessible, affordable, and that multiple generations should have the opportunity to experience the fun and healthy lifestyle of rowing together.

Learn to Row

NEW We've added two classes in August, including a High-School/Junior Session! Click here to learn more!

Our one-month Learn To Row classes provide a unique opportunity to learn the foundations of rowing on beautiful Lake Mendota. Our classes are designed for people of all abilities and ages (14 & up). Join other beginning rowers who are excited to get out on the water, connect with new people, improve their fitness, and try something new!

Classes meet for 2 hours, twice a week, for four weeks at our boathouse (622 E Gorham St), in James Madison Park. Classes are available in May, June, and July. Registration is currently open for 2019 classes.
