Ann Arbor Rowing Club


AARC Inclusive Program


Everyone is invited to row with us!


The Ann Arbor Rowing Club is a proud affiliate of USRowing’s America Rows program that is designed to promote inclusiveness in the sport of rowing.  AARC is committed to making rowing more accessible to all community members and strives to create opportunities for all athletes.  We currently offer specialized programs for veterans and adaptive programs for athletes with physical or cognitive disabilities, such as autism spectrum disorder.  

Athletes in the Inclusive Program will be asked to provide relevant medical documentation for evaluation of adjustments to equipment and procedures that will accommodate their impairments and allow them to participate to the maximum of their abilities. All provided medical information will be treated confidentially.

AARC's Inclusive Rowing Programs are supported primarily through fundraising, donations and other community support.  Please consider supporting this program--Donate here

Winter Programs




Adaptive Indoor Rowing Program: December-March

Time: Sundays 3-4pm

Location: Advantage Strength and Conditioning 2121 Oak Valley Dr, Ann Arbor, MI 48103

A free one hour coached indoor rowing session is offered to youth and adults ages 12 and older with physical or intellectual/developmental disabilities.  These sessions are staffed by AARC coaches and volunteers who provide individualized direction and support to each participant. Participants are taught rowing technique and are coached through workouts, while progressing at their own pace.  The indoor rowing machines (ergometers) can be equipped with specialized equipment to accommodate physical barriers.





AARC endeavors to make rowing accessible to the broad community.  Scholarships are available to those with financial need to support participation.  
AARC is a 501(c)3 organization.  Donations made to AARC may be eligible for tax deduction.  Please check with your tax consultant.
