Never rowed before but would like to give it a try? WRRA has been training Clevelanders how to row since 1989. Learn to Rows are half day instructional sessions that introduce new rowers to the sport on the Cuyahoga River.

WRRA operational costs are not insignificant. Dues and fees alone are not sufficient to cover the cost of all programs. In order to achieve its mission while keeping costs at a sustainable level, WRRA relies on donations -- both on the individual and corporate level. Several options are available to get involved.
