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 in our Adult Program. Must have at least 3 months experience or prior approval from the Program Director.


We offer opportunities for youth in grades 6-12. Waitlist available for Fall Season 2021. Winter Season registration will open in November.


If you've never rowed before or if it's been a while, Learn to Row is a great place to start. Contact us for more information and private lesson inquires.


We have rentals available for kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and canoes during the summer.

Reservations must be made online. 

About our Roots

A Community Boathouse of the GPRF

George Pocock, a master boat builder who resided in the Pacific Northwest for many years, believed that rowing changes lives. Our rowing center honors the Pocock Legacy and works to ensure rowing opportunity in the PNW.
