Who We Serve

ARC programs serve young athletes in grades 8 through 12 and adults of all ages. Our Junior rowing program seeks to compete at the highest level in local, regional and national regattas. The program serves students from middle and high schools throughout the Capital District. Our Adult rowing programs include both competitive and non-competitive rowing and serve a diverse group of new and experienced rowers. Membership stands at approximately 125 members distributed more or less equally between juniors and adults. Membership is open to all and ARC does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, age or sexual orientation.
