Row New York works with public schools across the city from November through February to provide students with rowing-based gym classes. We provide the equipment and trained staff to run classes in cooperation with the school’s P.E. teachers. Students are led through stretching and warm-up exercises and then get introduced to the sport of rowing using ergometers. Students get a fun, full-body workout, and relay races promote teamwork and good sportsmanship.
Row New York is an official NYC DOE vendor.
In recent years, Row New York has also spearheaded partnerships with Horizon Juvenile Center in the South Bronx and Crossroads Juvenile Center in Brownsville, Brooklyn, to provide youth in locked detention the chance to mitigate daily stress and violence and become fit through indoor rowing. As a result, participants prove to be more focused, calm, and connected to staff and peers.
