The Orange County Rowing Association is proud to offer a year-round competitive rowing program for high school rowers ages 13-18. Our youth program is a performance-based, competitive program that strives to provide our athletes with the training and technical skills needed to perform on a local, national, and international stage.
Participants will be trained in accordance with the latest training methods by USRowing Certified coaches, and will participate in regattas across the United States and Canada.
We welcome any rower that wishes to train and hone their rowing abilities in order to promote a competitive, sportsmanlike atmosphere, and improve regatta performance. Come row for the premiere youth rowing venue in the Hudson Valley!
Rowers in our Youth Competitive program have won medals all over the country, and beyond!
