Youth Rowing

A Commitment to Excellence

JUNIOR ROWING PROGRAM

This is a competitive program and enrollment demands far more than mere attendance. We expect commitment, hard work and sacrifice from all the young men and women who choose to become part of the program. In return, our athletes earn a spot in the most successful youth rowing program in the Southeast and carry on a tradition of winning and commitment to competition at the highest levels of youth sport.

Opportunities for the Future

Our rowers’ success also provides a pathway to wonderful collegiate opportunities. Statistics show that 100% of our graduating seniors went on to top notch universities and 92% stated that rowing at MBRC helped them get into the college of their choice.

Many collegiate coaches from prestigious institutions such as Harvard, Boston University and University of Connecticut use their training trips to Miami Beach as an opportunity to seek out promising athletes.
