MIT Rowing Club

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

MIT Rowing Club (MITRC) is a community-run, co-ed rowing club for members of the MIT community. During the Spring, Summer, and Fall, we offer rowing programs for beginners (Learn-To-Row), novices (<1 year of experience), recreational, and competitive rowers who participate in several regattas, including the Head of the Charles. Join our mailing list to join and stay up to date with all the latest MITRC news!

[Note: MITRC is *not* a varsity team. If you are looking for MIT's varsity teams, head over to the MIT athletics website]

Summer sign-ups are closed. Stay tuned for Fall 2024.
