Throughout its 40 year history, the Miami Rowing Club has been the premier youth rowing club in South Florida and the United States.
It has graduated over one thousand rowers and good citizens placing many in the top colleges in the country. Our alumni have excelled at the highest competitive levels forming part of US National Teams (Arthur Cooper, Fernando Mendoza, Eddie Montalvo, Megan Burritt, Robin Prendes and Wilson Valle) winning medals at Junior, Under 23 and elite lightweight World Championships and participating in the Olympic games. Our youth regularly medal in State, Regional and National Championships.
More importantly, we graduate young men and women that have learned the value of hard work, discipline, perseverance and team work.
