Mile High Rowing Club: Colorado's Most Successful Youth Rowing Program

Our goal is to promote and encourage the growth and development of rowing through quality instruction and training programs for metro Denver area youth, ages 13-18.

We provide a healthy experience and atmosphere where student athletes can experience all the benefits rowing has to offer. Our programs are designed to bring out the best in each athlete in a fun, yet competitive environment.

Are You Ready for a New Sport?

MHRC draws rowers from all over the Denver metro area:  Cherry Creek, Aurora, Evergreen, Parker, Littleton, and Englewood, just to name a few. Many of our rowers come to MHRC with very diverse athletic backgrounds.  Some of our top rowers have participated in other high school sports, but decided they wanted to make a change to find a new passion.
