Cleveland's Premier Adult Rowing Club
Established 1989

The boathouse is starting to reopen with social distancing on top of mind: Presently, WRRA is building on Phase 2 by making the WRRA sculling fleet available to those registered for General Sculling. There are a number of restrictions and rules that must be followed, including cleaning protocols, social distancing, reservation of times to row and shells, etc. Please go to our sculling page for details. We will be updating our community through our website and Facebook. If you have questions about sculling programs, please email Sharon at

Never rowed before but would like to give it a try? WRRA has been training Clevelanders how to row since 1989. Learn to Rows are half day instructional sessions that introduce new rowers to the sport on the Cuyahoga River.

WRRA operational costs are not insignificant. Dues and fees alone are not sufficient to cover the cost of all programs. In order to achieve its mission while keeping costs at a sustainable level, WRRA relies on donations. Several options are available to get involved.
