COMMUNITY ROWING AT THE HRRA BOATHOUSE
HUDSON RIVER ROWING ASSOCIATION was established in 1998 by a group of like-minded coaches that wanted to offer quality rowing opportunities to junior and adult rowers in the Hudson Valley.
More than 20 years later, HRRA has grown into the largest and most diverse rowing club on the Hudson. We have taught hundreds of people to row. Many of our junior and adult rowers have gone on to earn regional, national, and world championship medals.
We operate out of the Community Boathouse, a place that was built specifically to grow a greater community of rowers. It stands as one of the largest and most beautiful boathouses in North America and is home to seven scholastic and two club rowing teams in the Hudson Valley.
Join HRRA at one of our FREE introduction workshops. No prior experience is required. Junior athletes ages 12 and up, along with Adult rowers, are welcome. We have a beautiful facility equipped with indoor tanks for a simulated rowing experience. You will learn about our novice, recreational, intermediate, and competitive rowing programs. The workshop is designed to provide you with an overview of the sport and cover basic rowing terminology and techniques. You’ll get a chance to tour our facility, hear about HRRA programs, use our rowing machines (a.k.a. ergs), and row in our indoor tanks. If the river cooperates in May and June you will get a chance to sit in a boat! This is a great way to “test the waters!”
If you have never rowed before you can start with one of our FREE introductory sessions:
Sunday, August 15, 11:00am – 1:00 pm
Thanks to everyone who participated in and donated to the first annual HRRA Ergathon.
The 31 athletes erged 4,241,786 meters in just 4 weeks. Most successfully erged 100k. Some reached 200k and earned their C2 Holiday Challenge pin. Amazingly, a few erged over 300k and even 400k!
