Flower City Rowing is a team that proves graduating college does not mean your rowing years are
behind you. FCR provides community, racing opportunities and a means to stay in peak physical shape
for those with considerable rowing experience who can meet a fitness and technical standard. The
program involves an intense training schedule with team training 3 days week (with supplemental practices supplied) focusing on competing in open regattas and rowing events.


Flower City was started when a few RIT student rowers, ran out of athletic eligibility but still wanted to get on the water and keep rowing. Since then the program has grown to almost three eights of rowers from eight different colleges and competed in a few major regattas. This summer is the biggest the club has been and it shows no sign of slowing down. Flower City is an exciting place to be these days, so watch this space for things to come.
