ETRO offers recreational and competitive rowing programs for adults and youth. The club is dedicated to helping its participants get exactly what they want out of rowing - whether it be for exercise, fun, competition or meeting lifelong friends and teammates.
Learning to row with East Tennessee Rowing is now easier than ever. During the Summer months (May-August), adults can join us for Learn To Row Classes every Monday and Wednesday at 6 pm at the Smoky Mountain Rowing Center (Boathouse Location).
