We aim to include any youth in the community interested in rowing. All youth athletes are welcome in our programs, regardless of fitness or experience. New rowers can sign up for our seasonal programs, or contact the Program Director for additional details.


We will offer local and regional competition opportunities for our athletes as they become available. Competition is open to High School athletes of all skill levels. Participation in competition is optional and will be available during the Fall and Spring seasons.

Need support to row?

The George Pocock Rowing Foundation provides need-based youth rowing scholarships at multiple boathouses throughout Seattle and Renton. Scholarship funds are awarded based on financial need and the participant’s ability to meet attendance and participation expectations. If awarded a scholarship, athletes must:


  • Attend 75% of practices

  • Volunteer 5 hours per season

  • Attend one community event per year


Partial and full scholarships are available. The information you provide will be treated confidentially, and will be used only for eligibility determination.

​Funding is limited and awarded on a case by case basis.
