As Madison's oldest community rowing club and a non-profit, 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 rowers interested in high level competition to those new to rowing. We believe rowing should be accessible and affordable, and that multiple generations have the opportunity to experience rowing together. Mendota Rowing Club's purpose is to foster amateur competitive national and international athletes, and to build a diverse community of life-long rowers.
Are you an EXPERIENCED rower?
If you have rowed before, we offer three levels of sweep rowing based on experience. You may also learn to scull or improve your technique during our dedicated sculling practices or, once approved, row as an independent sculler. To find out more click Adult Programs.
