There are no shortcuts to rowing success...
Each athlete must pay their dues in sweat equity and diligence to skills development.
However, surrounding yourself with like-minded, highly motivated athletes
guided by equally passionate, experienced and dedicated coaching staff,
places you on a much faster and more ambitious trajectory.
City Island Rowing will always remain small and highly selective for this very reason.
Competitive rowing is a year-round commitment, divided into four distinct seasons.

Learn to Row
From Learning to Row on paddle boards to State Champions in 8 months !
We conduct our Learn to Row (LTR) classes in the summer, taking advantage of warm water and sunny skies.
Unique to CIR is the use of converted Stand Up Paddle Boards, and very small class sizes.
This allows for highly individualized instruction, for athletes to proceed at their own pace,
and a great foundation on which to build a competitive rowing future.
