Adaptive and Para Rowing for Athletes with Unique Needs

San Diego Rowing Club volunteers host a regional adaptive rowing center for civilian and military adaptive rowers.

SDRC has equipment to support all classifications of athletes with unique needs due to private contributions and grant support by the USOC Paralympics organization and the Veteran’s Administration.

The Club supports learn to row sessions for injured servicemen and wounded warriors.

  • We also host local challenged athletes for on-water and land fitness training.
  • We were instrumental in the first ever Rowing segment of the Paralympics Sports Camp in October, 2010.
  • The Club played a pivotal role in the first ever VA Summer Sports Camp held at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center in September, 2011 and it’s still going strong each year with over 100+ athlets learning to row.
  • The Club’s Coggeshall Center is accessible for all classes of adaptive rowers.
