Why Row?

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!
