Youth Rowing

**** We are pleased to offer the links below for online registration for the 20-21 season. Due to coronavirus restrictions capacity is limited and registration is on a first come basis. ****

We require everyone to wear a face mask, social distance etc., as we depend on everyone’s cooperation to operate the rowing programs safely. Related to that, there’s no quarantine required when returning from domestic travel however, the latest information from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the CDC includes a recommendation for 14 days quarantine after international travel. Anyone returning from overseas must wait 14 days before attending a program at MBRC.

The CDC health questionnaire is attached. Please discuss it with your rower so they are prepared to answer the questions.

A Commitment to Excellence


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.
