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. 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 2021/2022 is now open! Reserve your spot today.


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.

Reservations are open now on our website! Make your reservation in advance for the best price and to make sure your preferred equipment is available.

About our Roots

A Community Boathouse of the GPRF

We are often out on the water and not in the boathouse so we can't always answer the phone. Our voicemail is currently out of order, but if you drop us an email we'll make sure to get back to you within 2 business days!
