Whitemarsh Boat Club offers year-round rowing and racing opportunities for male and female middle school and high school students from across the Delaware Valley. The Schuylkill River at Conshohocken offers an ideal place to train. The Club’s location near the intersection of I-76 and 476 gives easy access for families from across the region. Our programs are designed so youth of all skill levels have a place in our organization.

Middle School Program

Middle School students from 11 years or older. This Program is a fun, low key way to learn and/or develop the basics of rowing. Offered each Spring.

Technical Training

While you won’t be attending regattas you will be improving with every practice & will also be working hard enough to maintain an aerobic base for the upcoming winter season. Offered each Summer and Fall.

Race Team

Winter Training

Any High School rower who is looking for a well-rounded approach to “off season” training. If your scholastic program does not offer a winter training program, we welcome you to join us! Offered each Winter.
