Para-rowing provides athletes with a physical, sensory or intellectual disability the opportunity to be active on the water, get involved in a fun and friendly club environment, and participate in a variety of competitions.
The Gorge Narrows Rowing Club can help you get started and set goals for your rowing, whether you are interested in being recreational or competitive.
Para-rowing is suitable for a wide range of persons with a disability, including but not limited to spinal cord injury; amputations; visual impairment and blindness; cerebral palsy; spina bifida; intellectual disabilities, including autism and Down syndrome; and hearing impairments.
The equipment used is essentially the same as for able-bodied rowers, with adaptations made to the equipment as required. Our coaches will work with you to figure out what you need.
