Rowing is like no other experience you’ve had in any other sport. It will challenge your mind and body equally; it will teach you to tap into potential you never knew you had; it will forge friendships that last a lifetime. Rowing will change your life for the better, and rowing with the North Palm Beach Rowing Club is the best there is.
Results speak for themselves. NPBRC’s program is led by a world-class coaching staff comprised of former Olympians, national team members, and college champions. We’re the best and most fun crew you’ll find in South Florida. With top-notch equipment and miles of flat water, our team is consistently atop the medal stands at regattas around the country. NPBRC has produced multiple National Champions and Florida State Champions, and has earned medals at races across the US and Canada. We develop young athletes who have never picked up an oar before into highly successful rowers.
Our team is open to any area student, grades 6-12. We bring students from multiple schools together on a single team, a format that breaks down barriers and forges truly lifelong bonds. NPBRC is also unique in that our adults, or “masters”, are actively engaged in training, developing, and mentoring our team. Many masters hold USRowing coaching certifications and have raced and won at the national, international, or elite levels, experience that sets an invaluable example for our young rowers.
No prior rowing experience is necessary. If you’ve tried other sports but haven’t found one that fits, give rowing a try and join us for a practice. You’ll never know what you’re missing until you do.
We offer practice up to six days per week for high school aged rowers, Monday through Saturday. However, we know kids have to balance school demands with rowing, so allow kids and parents to choose whether they attend all six days. The Fall season runs from August through November. Spring season runs from January through April, concluding with the Florida State Championships. Youth rowing’s post season -Southeast Regionals, and Nationals – occur through June.
Our coach will set the regatta schedule within the first two weeks of practice with input from parents and rowers. Typically, new rowers race twice in the fall and several more times in the spring. Returning rowers who are fit and ready for competition should plan for up to eight regattas over the academic year.
