Chautauqua Lake Rowing Association


Rowing Is:

  • A sport that nearly anyone can participate in!
  • The ULTIMATE Team Sport!
  • Non-Contact!
  • Great for Cross Training!
  • A TOTAL Body Low-Impact Workout!
  • Hard Work but FUN!!!! 


Currently in the United States, there are more scholarships available from colleges and universities for students who wish to row than there are students with rowing experience applying (this is particularly true for girls).
Schools which do not offer scholarships often give admissions preference to students who plan to row.  Rowing with the CLRA could lead to one of these scholarships in the future.
