The Triangle Rowing Club (TRC) is the premier youth rowing club and competitive team in the Triangle area!
Our mission is to promote character, commitment, athleticism, leadership, and teamwork in youth through the sport of competitive rowing in the Triangle area.
The club is open to students in grades 7-12, from all middle and high schools in the Triangle area. We have rowers from Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Garner, Apex, Holly Springs, and Wake Forest. We welcome rowers of all abilities, from novice to experienced, and strive to provide a fun, safe, positive, and stimulating experience. They learn to compete and work as a team, gaining valuable life skills.
The club practices at Lake Wheeler, located about six miles south of downtown Raleigh. Our fleet includes doubles, fours, eights and pairs. We participate in both sweep rowing and sculling events.
TRC competes in regattas in nearby states such as Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. Fall is for Head racing, in which boats race the clock in single file, with interval starts, over a winding course of up to 6000 meters. In the spring, rowers compete in Sprints which are head-to-head races in six lanes over a straight 2000 meter course.
We welcome you to our club. Please contact us for more information!
