Community Rowing, Inc. offers a broad range of programs for people with disabilities, from recreational and therapeutic to elite competition. CRI is a Move United Platinum Level Chapter organization.

Rowing is a highly adaptable and inclusive activity, and provides individuals with physical, sensory, and cognitive challenges an opportunity to be a part of a rowing community that values teamwork, self-determination, and commitment to personal goals. Our coaches are highly trained and experienced in working with athletes with disabilities, and provide a high-challenge/high-support environment to help all participants succeed. Through the sport of rowing, people of all abilities become athletes, learn to take positive risks, develop confidence, and become part of a community. CRI is recognized as one of the top clubs in the US for para, adaptive, and inclusion rowing, and hosts the USRowing Para National Team.
