THE GREAT SPORT OF ROWING
Rowing has been described as the "ultimate team sport" because each rower's individual effort, no matter how great, must harmonize with that of every other rower to create the smooth, synchronous flow of a winning boat.
WHAT WE TEACH
Successful rowers develop a deep practical understanding of the power of teamwork. They learn to build and perform as a team, and they learn to deal with the common obstacles and snags that impede teamwork. Rowers learn a kind of mental discipline that stands them in good stead in any endeavor they may undertake.
Founded in 1980, the Pacific Rowing Club (“PRC”) has offered coaching in a sport in which stardom is virtually unknown and where "teamwork" is a real working value rather than a catch phrase. The Club’s highly competitive junior rowing program is open to boys and girls in the San Francisco Bay area in eighth grade through high school. Representing a true cross-section of our City, PRC generally represents over 25 Bay Area high schools.
Pacific Rowing Club is dedicated to providing the finest youth rowing experience possible in an inclusive, supportive, and safe community. In partnership with our families, we prepare our athletes for life after high school through lessons learned both on and off the water.
