Three Rivers Rowing Adaptive Programs offer athletes age 12+ with disabilities the chance to enjoy sport of rowing. The program rows out of Washington’s Landing on the Allegheny River. The program’s close proximity to downtown allows participants and volunteers the opportunity to explore the revitalized waterways and shoreline of our beautiful city. No prior experience necessary!

Rowing Classifications:

PR1 (Previously AS)

For athletes with limited trunk control.  The shells these athletes row have fixed seats and pontoons for stability, and the rower is strapped to the fixed seat both at the waist and at the upper chest level, to allow only shoulder and arm movements. The PR1 1x for men and women is the focus in this category for international competition.

PR2 (Previously TA)

For athletes who are able to use only their trunk muscles.  The shells used by these athletes generally have fixed seats and pontoons for added stability, and sculling is most common. The PR2 Mixed 2x is the focus in this category for international competition.

PR3 (Previously LTA)

For athletes who are able to use at least one leg, their trunk, and their arms, and for those with visual impairments or cognitive impairments.  PR3 athletes typically row in standard sculling or sweep shells with sliding seats, with the option of adding pontoons for extra stability. The PR3 Mixed 4+ is the focus in this category for international competition.
