Reviews for Bainbridge Island Rowing

Rating: 5 stars  

Our son Ben has been a rower since his freshman year, he's now a junior. The organization is truly there to serve and provide a world class rowing experience to our community. I am taking on co-management of the BIR field kitchen. The organization is a vast network of volunteers and donors allowing BIR to offer scholarships which is huge. Our junior and master rowers well exceeds 100 and the smiles make it all worthwhile. Thanks David

Fabulous, talented group of coaches teaching the rowers outstanding rowing skills and invaluable life lessons too. Two of my daughters have rowed with BIR and grew as rowers and young adults. The club is an asset to our island community.

This is such a rich and inclusive community! Rowing builds character and teamwork for teens involved at the High School level on the team, and is a GREAT outlet for adults seeking new connections and to get back in shape!

The community is supportive, positive and a genuine member of our vibrant Island Community life!

I became acquainted with BIR when I covered their regattas as a journalist. It was a distinct pleasure to work with them and report on their impressive accomplishments out on the water. They were organized and enthusiastic, and it was clear to see what a positive role they play in our town and how motivated members of the program are. I hoped my daughter might be a part of such a great sport and great group of people. Now she's in her second year on the team, and I'm so grateful she and our family are part of this community. She is challenging herself in amazing ways, connecting with other motivated kids, and learning values and confidence that I know she will take with her the rest of her life.

Cannot say enough good things about BIR. My son went through the rowing program during high school and absolutely loved it. BIR has done amazing fundraising as a group to keep this organization afloat (pun intended.). Please consider supporting BIR.

Fantastic, warm, welcoming community rowing program that also boasts a competitive adult men's and women's program. Juniors program is well organized and some of the best youth in the Pacific Northwest rowing circuit. I've raced and guest rowed with the adult program and helped the youth program at regattas - it's a well run organization in the Pacific Northwest that other community rowing programs strive to become.
