Rowing at Cape Coral Rowing Club

What is rowing?  Is it easy to learn?  And would someone want to keep doing this activity for a lifetime, as many of us do?  It's a mindful, thoughtful sport that can evoke a team camaraderie within you when rowing with a crew, or a sense of peace when rowing your own boat on calm water.  It's something that can help you achieve a level of fitness you never though possible, yet it's a low-impact activity which doesn't tear up the body or joints.  There's a learning curve that just keeps on challenging you forever, yet engages you to almost the point of addiction.  

What are we about?  CCRC is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the sport of rowing.  We've taught over 500 local area students and adults the skills and discipline of rowing.

Youth rowers: Click the "Youth Program" menu for more information about programs, schedules, and fees.

Adult rowers, ages 19 to ...  We refer to these rowers as Masters Crew.

  • Experienced Masters practices are held on Tuesdays & Thursdays at 6pm and on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 7am
  • Additional practices may be held for race preparation and for sculling, and frequently there are weekday morning practices for those wanting to row in "small" boats of one or two rowers per boat.
  • After practices we often meet to refuel at one of the many fine local restaurants for dinner or breakfast.
