This is a high school club program. Ages 14-18 years old. Rowers from WNY schools and home-schooled youth participate and compete wearing the BSRA argyle. Rowing is a sport for anyone, whether you are a star athlete in another sport or joining a team for the first time. Rowing is the ultimate team sport, unlike any other. All members will find a place where they fit in and are appreciated for who they are. There are competitions and events for Varsity, JV and Novices. The coaches work hard to make sure all rowers get a chance at competing in a rowing shell each season. Rowers will build new friendships through this sport that will last a lifetime and life skills such as leadership, communication and accountability are tested at every practice and race.

Rowing is a non-impact and non-contact sport. Cross training does include impact exercises, but coaches have alternative exercises for those who need a strict non-impact workout. This sport is ideal for athletes who have previously participated in a contact sport and sustained knee or head injuries.

Team BSRA rowers and coxswains attend schools all over WNY including: St. Mary's HS in Lancaster, Mount Mercy Academy, City Honors, Lancaster HS, Hamburg Central HS, Clarence HS, Bishop Timon-St. Jude, Lockport HS and Buffalo Public Schools.

We welcome you to join our team!

BSRA's Update on the COVID -19 crisis:

March 26,2020, 4pm

Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, BSRA has decided to officially cancel our Spring season of competitive junior rowing. This decision comes after announcements from CSSRA,  SRAA, USRowing Youth Nationals and NYSSRA that the respective 2020 championships have all been canceled.

BSRA will be following direction from our local, state and federal leaders to determine whether an instructional fun club rowing opportunity will be available for later in the Spring.

Our next update will be on May 15th.

In the meantime, again please stay home and respect the instructions for social distancing.

We hope to return to the water soon!
