Philadelphia City Rowing offers a FREE Middle School Program that introduces students in 7th and 8th grade to the sport of rowing. Students must attend a Philadelphia Public or Charters school to participate in the program.

Practices are located at Lloyd Hall, #1 Boathouse Row, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:15-6:30 pm and on Saturdays from 11:30-1:30 pm.  Students will learn about rowing through both on-the-water and land workouts. In addition, PCR provides a general introduction to fitness, nutrition education, and environmental education.

Swim lessons and testing are still TBD and will be based on our ability to secure pool time from one of our program partners.
