Summer Rowing League

*Updated for 2020

The Summer Rowing League (also known as Corporate Rowing) is the premiere recreational rowing program in the City of Pittsburgh.  For over twenty years the Summer League has allowed residents of Allegheny County to explore the city’s iconic rivers with 8 other friends or coworkers and experience the ultimate team sport. Over the course of 9 sessions and overseen by the Three Rivers coaching staff, novices will be taught all the skills necessary to compete in a race against other Summer League teams at the end of each season. Experienced crews can continue to perfect their technique and fitness. After your row, enjoy BBQ and beers with the other crews.
