Riverside Boat Club supports athletes in achieving competitive excellence and in maintaining the continual presence of rowing in their lives. Riverside grows and develops individuals who compete for the US National Team at the World Championships and the Olympic Games through the High Performance Group. The Sweep (men’s, women’s, and master’s) and Junior programs offer the opportunity for rowers to race competitively at the club level at a variety of regattas – from Head of the Charles to Canadian Henley. The sculling group is dedicated to providing a technique foundation for rowers. Combined, Riverside’s programs help build a cohesive community and offer a solid foundation for each member.
Riverside Boat Club offers several rowing programs to members who wish to row and compete in a team environment. Riverside’s rowing programs range in required time commitment, offering a range of options for members.

Life at Riverside
Riverside offers a unique training environment for experienced rowers. Multiple rowing programs are available to members who wish to train and compete at every level.
The boat club is run entirely by the volunteer efforts of its own members. Committees work together to manage the boathouse – from equipment selection to washing the locker room showers and even to maintaining a lively social calendar throughout the year. Please see the Committees page for more information about each member-run committee.
