Central Ohio Rowing (formerly Dublin Crew*) welcomes middle and high school-aged girls and boys throughout the Columbus area. In addition to home-schooled students, our athletes are enrolled in many different private and public high schools. No experience is necessary to join, and new rowers may utilize the opportunity for a trial period before commiting to an entire season.

*Dublin Crew has officially now transitioned to its new name as Central Ohio Rowing to more accurately reflect the broad Central Ohio community served by our non-profit organization. 

All registrations will continue through RegattaCentral

Our fall season is in full swing! 

Come check out a practice weekday afternoons. All sessions take place at Griggs Reservoir on the Scioto River, 2933 Riverside Dr., Columbus, OH  43221

If you have any questions about Central Ohio Rowing, please feel free to contact us.

Row with Us!

Plan to join us for Spring 2020

Registration for Spring will open in early 2020. Learn more.

We use RegattaCentral exclusively for all registration and related fee payments; this system will enable you to complete the required waiver and medical authorization forms, too.

If you have registered your child with us in the previous 12 months, you do not need to complete the waiver and the medical authorization, unless there has been a change in your child’s health during that period. Please contact us if you have any questions.
