Triangle Rowing Club (TRC) is a membership-based, youth rowing program located in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Our mission is to promote character, commitment, athleticism, and teamwork in youth through the sport of competitive rowing. We are proud to welcome any participant willing to work hard and compete. We focus on turning young people into athletes that are both physically strong and mentally tough while nurturing teamwork, leadership, and good sportsmanship.
Our team is open to students from 7th- 12th grade who make up six different squads: two middle school, two novice, and two varsity squads:
Middle School Girls/Middle School Boys: The middle school squads were formed to give 7th and 8th graders an opportunity to experience competitive rowing before committing to the time demands of novice and varsity. The practice schedule is less demanding and the squads compete in regattas one to two times per season against other middle school squads.
Novice Women/Novice Men: Novice refers to any high school athlete in his/her first year of competition, regardless of age or grade. These squads are considered the foundation of the team because here athletes learn the stroke technique and race strategy. At regattas, novice squads race against other novice squads.
Varsity Women/Varsity Men: Athletes that complete one year of novice competition receive the classification of varsity. Varsity squads are comprised of varsity “A” boats (top boats) and varsity “B” boats (junior varsity boats).
TRC, a 501(c)(3) is a non-profit organization, established in 2008 with the merging of local teams Raleigh Charter High School Crew and Wake Rowing.
