Rowing experience or returning to rowing? Check out our Summer Season.

The youth rowing team at CBRC is built around the core values of teamwork, sportsmanship, hard work, and accountability. At the heart of our program is the singular goal to give South Sound youth the very best opportunities to not only excel at an athletic endeavor, but to grow into healthy and capable adults and citizens.

Practice Times

Practices are held at Harry Todd Park in Lakewood.

Fall and Spring Seasons: Monday-Friday
Summer and Winter Seasons: Monday-Thursday 

Spring, Fall, and Winter: 3:45 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.
Summer Season: 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

We enjoy one of the best bodies of water for rowing in the Northwest on Lakewood’s American Lake.
We train during all four seasons, including indoor training in the winter.
Rowing is a sport that requires consistency and commitment in order to advance and excel at it.

The team is split into two broad categories: “varsity” and “novice”

Novice rowers are new to the sport and spend their first year acquiring the skills and the exposure to rowing that they will need in order to excel as future varsity rowers. Members of the varsity squad are generally those athletes having completed at least a fall season of rowing as a novice. 

CBRC crews compete locally and nationally

CBRC may not be the largest club in the area, but we more than make up for that account on our perseverance and dedication to our athletes. The junior’s team routinely sends athletes to the Youth National Championships. Most recently, the juniors team sent six athletes in two events to the 2022 USRowing National Championships, with the Men’s 4+ placing first in the B final. Our athletes are often accepted, recruited, and qualify for the U19 US National Team, development camps, and the nation’s best collegiate teams.
