Use of Club equipment is restricted to members who have completed the annual membership registration including the waiver and annual dues. The club does not discriminate on the basis of race, national origin, religion, color, gender, age, sexual orientation, or residence.

Rowing is a vigorous aerobic activity conducted on the water in narrow boats and involves some danger. Prospective members must be confident swimmers. No prospective member should be deterred from inquiring about rowing, but if uncertain should ask a physician's advice. Many have taken up rowing after injuries in other sports such as running, as injuries have made it necessary for them to find an alternative aerobic activity.


For those joining our club with sculling experience, we will give you an orientation and an initial evaluation regarding your skill level before going out on the water.


Rowers are encouraged to race. Use of club equipment for racing requires preapproval. MRC typically attends the following races:

Summer - 1000 meter sprints

July - Chicago Sprints (Chicago, IL)

Fall - Head Races

September- Milwaukee River Challenge (Milwaukee, WI)

Note: Regatta entry fees, trailer fees, and travel costs are covered by each competitor. These costs vary from competition to competition. Athletes who do not pay regatta/trailering fees are not eligible to race in any MRC boat for any race until delinquent fees are paid in full.
