Mission

The Everett Rowing Motto:

"The Everett Rowing Association offers the premier rowing experience for adults and youths in the Greater Everett Area.  The association combines recreational, social and competitive opportunities that lead to building health, life skills and rowing excellence."

The Everett Rowing Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the sport of rowing in Snohomish County.  If you are looking to enter the sport, we offer classes in learning how to row for youth and adults.  We will take you through the basics of the stroke and by the time you are done, you will be rowing on the Snohomish River.

If you have rowed in the past and are looking to get back into the sport we can find the right seat for you!  Take a look at our Adult (Masters) Program page and please contact Everett Rowing with any questions.
