What’s your why?

Manhattan Community Rowing Club exists to grow the sport of rowing right here in the Little Apple. We want everyone to row!

What is rowing?

The rowing motion is all about leverage, so no matter your size or strength, you can make daily gains at any skill level.

From November to February, our rowing happens indoors on individual machines that provide instantaneous data on each stroke you take so you can watch yourself get fitter, faster, and stronger.

If you’re up for learning something new that will challenge you for the rest of your life, this club is for you!


Our club provides something for everyone, whether your motivation is competitive, recreational, or somewhere in between!

The primary physical benefits of rowing include increases in coordination, flexibility, and core stability, in addition to the cardiovascular capacity commonly associated with our sport.

Plus, learning to row is a lifelong challenge to overcome with both personal commitment and team rapport. Combining attributes of both individual and team sport experiences, becoming a rower gives you opportunities for personal accomplishments as well as social engagement.
