THREE RIVERS ROWING ASSOCIATION

Affiliate

TRRA is the host to three scholastic (high school) and three collegiate rowing teams. 

Scholastic Teams

Central Catholic High School

 

Pittsburgh's Central Catholic High School is a college preparatory, Catholic school for boys, guided by the educational principles of St. John Baptist de La Salle. The school strives to provide a challenging, relevant, and diverse program of studies and extracurricular activities in an environment that fosters a life of faith and learning and develops leaders rooted in the Gospel values of integrity, respect, service, justice, and peace. Central's crew team is a means for students to attain this educational mission.

North Catholic High School

NCHS offers a wide array of competitive sports in which our students can participate. Teams compete at freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity levels. Nearly 80% of our students are members of one or more athletic team.

Oakland Catholic High School

Oakland Catholic offers crew as a club sport at the Novice and Varsity levels. The program begins in the Fall with instruction and races and continues in the winter with conditioning that will prepare athletes for the demands of spring competition. Weekday practices on the beautiful Allegheny River train rowers for exciting weekend races on waterways throughout the region.

 

Collegiate Teams

Carnegie Mellon University

Carnegie Mellon Rowing Club has been a club sport at CMU since 1987. Whether you're an undergraduate or graduate student, there's always space on our team for a new member. Our novice program is designed for those who have little to no rowing or coxing experience. Novice rowers will learn sweep rowing in fours and eights and coxswains will learn to make strategic calls and lead the rowers during races and practices. More experienced individuals may prefer to join the varsity squad.

We meet six days a week on the Allegheny River, varsity in the morning and the novice team in the afternoons, and row out of Washington's Landing. During the winter, training continues in Skibo Gym. Before returning to the Allegheny for the spring season, we train in South Carolina on Lake Marion during Spring Break.

Duquesne University

Duquesne University Women’s Rowing is a Division I rowing program in the Atlantic 10 Conference and one of  the founding members of the Washington Landing Boathouse at TRRA.  The program began as a club program and earned DI varsity status for the 1995-1996 season.  Since that time the team has earned 8 medals at the A-10 Championship, a top 3 finish (2007), and two top 4 finishes (2013 & 2015) in the conference, as well as 21 top 3 finishes in various events at the championship.  Our roster is comprised of recruited student-athletes as well as experienced walk-ons and novice walk-ons with no previous experience.

University of Pittsburgh

The University of Pittsburgh Rowing Club, informally referred to as Pitt Crew, was formed in 1988 by a group of students who wanted to bring the sport of rowing to Pitt. 29 years later, the team has established its place amongst student organizations as one of the top competitive club sports. Our membership is currently around 70, including varsity and novice rowers.
