The BSRA, founded in 2009, provides community access to rowing on the Buffalo River. We currently have high school, adult (Masters), and Learn-to-Row programs rowing out of our boathouse on 405 Ohio Street, Buffalo, New York. We are an Association. Each program operates independently, sharing the facility and working together to advance the sport of rowing. We welcome anyone interested in rowing, new to the sport or with prior rowing experience to come visit us at our rowing facility or contact us.

Youth Learn-to-Row

For new rowers, ages 12- 16 years old, athletes of all sizes welcome, no experience necessary. Registrants should bring water in a reusable bottle, a packed lunch and extra weather appropriate clothing. Rowers will learn the lingo, how to get in and out of a boat, how to use an oar, work with a large team and what it means to be a teammate, carry boats and oars. $300/session. If a rower signs up for an additional session, $50 discount is applied.

Session1: July 8th-19th, Monday through Friday, 9am-2pm.

Session2: July 22nd-Aug. 2nd, M-F, 9am-2pm

Session3: Aug. 5th-16th, M-F, 9am-2pm

Youth Modified Sculling

This is for 12-14 year olds or 7th, 8th and incoming 9th graders to gain more one-on-one coaching in a single shell training boat (WaveCutter). The sessions are smaller than the Youth Learn to Row and are typically with rowers who would like to continue rowing in high school. $250/session. If a rower signs up for an additional session, $25 discount is applied to each session.
