PROGRAMS

We are launched in 2021 with a series of learn-to-row events in order to build awareness and relationships in the community. In 2022, we launched a youth rowing program for middle schoolers. In 2023, we added a competitive rowing program for high school students. This deliberate approach will allow us to focus on creating a positive, inclusive culture of excellence. In future years, we will add additional programs for adults and adaptive rowing. Please see below for more details or email us with questions.

The following programs will be listed for registration on the MetroParks website by 07 May 2024. All programs held at 2110 East D St, Tacoma. We will add registration links when they are available.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH EVENTS

We are committed to increasing awareness of and opportunities to participate in rowing.


YOUTH ROWING  &  STEM TO STERN

In Fall of 2023 and Spring 2024, we will offer two afternoon youth programs: 

Scholarships: 

We are proud to be a partner of STEM to Stern Rowing.

COLLEGIATE ROWING EXPLORATION WORKSHOPS (C.R.E.W.)

We want to empower youth with access, knowledge and opportunity.


C.R.E.W. is a free program for Tacoma's high school youth. 


Did you know that you do NOT need to row in high school in order to row competitively in college? 


In 5 sessions, we teach participants the basics of the sport on land and on the water. We also discuss collegiate rowing opportunities at the Division 1, 2 and 3 levels.


We run these for groups of 8-10 students from the same high school. We also have some 1-on-1 spots available as well.


C.R.E.W. is designed to be fun, informative. There is no commitment beyond the 5 sessions. If you don’t want to row more, no worries. You will walk away with fun memories and learn some practical cross training movements to make you stronger in your current sport. 

ADULT INTRO TO ROWING CLASSES

We offer limited group and private rowing lessons for adults. As we continue to build capacity and flush out our portfolio of youth programs, we will begin adding more programs for adults. 

MONDAY MORNING ROWS FOR BIPoC ENTREPRENEURS

We recognize the important work BIPoC entrepreneurs do in our community. We also know that you work long hours, including weekends. Join us on Monday mornings for fun, community and learning.


Thanks to Marquita from Intentions Juice Bar. She proposed this idea during a learn-to-row session in 2021.
