Welcome to Mendota Rowing Club!

As Madison's oldest community rowing club, members come from all walks of life. Our club includes

rowers with varying levels of skill, from brand new rowers to those who have been rowing for years. We welcome recreational rowers as well as those interested in high level competition. We believe rowing should be accessible and affordable and that multiple generations have the opportunity to experience the fun and healthy lifestyle of rowing together. Mendota Rowing Club's mission is to build a diverse community of life-long rowers. Rowing out of the Bernard-Hoover boathouse on beautiful Lake Mendota, we use 25 high quality rowing shells rigged for both sculling and sweep rowing. When not on the water, we train on 16 indoor rowing machines to improve our fitness.

Currently seeking a sculling program coach to begin late-July 2015. To apply, email a cover letter, resume, statement of coaching philosophy, and three references to
president at mendotarowingclub.com
