Recreational Adaptive

Recreational rowers will enjoy the fun, challenge, relaxation, teamwork, and health benefits offered by the sport of rowing. Recreational adaptive is for anyone with a disability looking to learn a new activity or experienced rowers who enjoy rowing for fitness. Rowers will meet weekly to learn the rowing stroke, improve technique, gain strength, develop confidence, make new friends, and be a part of a growing adaptive community in New York City. Rowing will take place either on the indoor rowing machine (erg) or on boats with our highly qualified and experienced coaches.

Our Recreational Adaptive program meets on Saturday afternoons. Participants with physical disabilities row from 12pm- 1:15 pm. Participants with cognitive disabilities row from 1:30pm- 3:00pm.  

All practices take place at our World’s Fair Boathouse.  Athletes who take Access-a-Ride should request “Parks–the Boathouse at Flushing Meadows”.

Come volunteer with us! Apply to volunteer here.
