Renton Rowing Center
RRC is Renton's boathouse. Whether you want to paddle and play on the water with our summer rentals or stay fit all year long with our recreational and competitive rowing teams, we are here for the Renton community! The Renton Rowing Center develops and supports rowing opportunities on South Lake Washington for all levels of ability. George Pocock believed anyone who had the desire to row and take part in the sport’s life-changing benefits should have the opportunity to participate. We want to remove barriers to rowing by providing a host of supports, including mentoring, transportation, nutrition and financial assistance. We provide a place to learn, improve technical skills, fitness, and compete in rowing.
We offer opportunities for adults of all ages. Membership is required for participation in intermediate and advanced programs or private boat storage.
New members must have completed a full Learn to Row class or obtain prior approval from the Program Director based on other experience.
We offer opportunities for youth in grades 6-12. No prior rowing or athletic experience necessary. Registration for Winter season will open for athletes in grades 9-12 on January 1st, based on availability.
LEARN TO ROW
If you've never rowed before or if it's been a while, Learn to Row is a great place to start. Our 4-week classes run from April - October every year. Contact us for more information and private lesson inquires.
We have rentals available for kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and canoes during the summer.
We are now closed for the season and will reopen on Memorial Day of 2023. Please visit our Rentals page for pricing and more information.

We are often out on the water and not in the boathouse so we can't always answer the phone. Please leave us a voicemail or send us an email and we will get back to you within 2 business days.
