Community Outreach

Western Reserve Rowing Association (WRRA) provides outreach opportunities for individuals who are interested in the sport of rowing through our Corporate, Veterans/Military, Pararowing, and Adaptive rowing programs.  

Veterans/Military Rowing League

For New and Experienced rowers.

In conjunction with Summer Rowing League (SRL), this program teaches the basics of sweep rowing in a coed team setting for those interested in a fun and challenging training program with the goal of competing at appropriate levels as skills progress. Participants start by learning the basics of the rowing stroke and join experienced military and veteran rowers as confidence and capabilities improve. The program is open to BK (below-the-knee) amputees given the nature of the program. Learn More

Para Rowing

Pararowing is rowing or sculling open to new and experienced rowers with a disability.

This program is for military and non-military participants with disabilities and includes indoor and on-water rowing for fitness, competing, and recreation in sculling boats meant for one or two rowers. Experienced staff and volunteers adjust the equipment for each boat so the capabilities of each participant are maximized. Coaching is provided both on and off the water, and each participant is monitored on the water by a coach in a motorized boat. Adaptations to equipment will be made for disabilities, such as: BK (below-the-knee), AK (above-the-knee) amputees. Learn More

Partnering with the Cleveland Sight Center, WRRA Adaptive Program offers athletes age 18+ with disabilities – visually impaired – the chance to enjoy the fun, challenge, and relaxation experienced by the sport of rowing. Learn More
