Member Services

Membership

We invite you to join a community of more than 1,300 organizations and over 75,000 athletes strong who pursue a sport like no other. As a USRowing member, you are helping to support the growth of rowing and fostering a community, cultivating excellence, and developing Olympic champions. Most importantly, becoming a member of USRowing is an invitation to personally experience “the ultimate team sport” and develop lifelong bonds.

Your membership supports domestic rowing at all levels of competition. In addition to regional and national competitions, membership also provides support for diversity and inclusion initiatives such as America Rows. This national program provides rowing opportunities, personal development and a platform to help under-represented youth and persons with disabilities. It is aimed at increasing awareness of rowing and introducing the sport to a diverse group of Americans – specifically, the underserved urban – as well as rural – youth who may not have the opportunity to participate in rowing, and persons with physical and/or intellectual disabilities. Your membership truly makes a difference!
