Join us on the Seekonk River! Find out about becoming a member and learning to row in Providence, Rhode Island.
A Full-Body Workout
Rowing is a workout for just about every part of your body—legs, core, and arms are all part of the stroke. It’s a fantastic low-impact way to build strength as well as an aerobic exercise.
The Beauty of Nature
Our urban river is home to a surprising range of flora and fauna—nesting herons, osprey, and bald eagles are just a start. And sunrise over the water is a great way to start your day!
The Thrill of Competition
You don’t have to race to enjoy rowing, but if you want to, opportunities abound. Whether you are a junior or a grandparent, there are lots of regattas close at hand, including the ones we host right here at NBC.
Camaraderie and Team-Building
Synchrony and speed: the crew of an eight, including cox, is perhaps the ultimate team. But there is camaraderie in all rowing—and as a club, we are a team that always welcomes new members!
