Welcome to MenDOta Rowing Club
Building a diverse community of life-long rowers!
As Madison's oldest community rowing club, our members come from all walks of life. Rowing
out of the Bernard-Hoover boathouse on beautiful Lake Mendota, we
offer opportunities to both sweep and scull. We have programs
for rowers interested in high level competition, those new to rowing,
and for those that fall in between.
We believe rowing should be
accessible, affordable, and that multiple generations should have the
opportunity to experience the fun and healthy lifestyle of rowing
Learn to Row
Our Learn To Row classes give you the opportunity to learn the foundations of rowing on beautiful Lake Mendota. Our classes are designed for people of all abilities and ages (14 & up) to gain exposure to this growing sport. Classes consist of both adults and teenagers. Often parents and their teenage children register for a class and learn to row together.
Classes meet for 2 hours, twice a week, for four weeks at our boathouse (622 E Gorham St), in James Madison Park. Classes are available in May, June, and July
