The Greater Dayton Rowing Association was established in 1992 as a non-profit organization to nurture, support, and promote rowing in the Dayton area. The club has built a boathouse on Island MetroPark alongside the Great Miami River, and is located at 124 Helena Street. Greater Dayton’s programs draw individuals from all over the Dayton area. This includes middle- and high-school athletes who participate in our Junior program. These athletes are taught how to row and then are trained for competition in regional, national, and even international regattas. The club has also, in recent years, played an important role in helping juniors get college rowing scholarships. And besides serving the young, Greater Dayton serves the young at heart. Our Learn-to-Row program has enabled hundreds of adults to master the basics of rowing. The club also supports those adult rowers who wish to compete at the master’s level. Our adult athletes have recently won medals in regional, national and international competitions. And each fall, our club plays host to the Charlie Doyle Memorial Regatta, an event that brings thousands of competitors and spectators to the Dayton area.
