RCR is excited to offer adaptive rowing here in RVA. We work with Sportable in facilitating rowing for over 30 para athletes! We also offer a high-performance adaptive rowing program for para rowers interested in training for national and international regattas. We offer competitive coaching, full training plans, customized equipment, and an approach that is tailored to each individual athlete.
RCR is devoted to treating athletes as athletes. We take this approach in everything we do, including our adaptive equipment. RCR is dedicated to providing our athletes with the best equipment we can find. Each athlete has their equipment tailored to their individual needs and preference
RCR has teamed up with the University of Richmond Crew Team and VCU Crew Teams to offer collegiate adaptive rowing. We worked with the UR Team to put Cole Sydnor on the water as the first adaptive rowing member of the UR Crew Team. He was officially the first ever PR1 rower to race at the collegiate level when he raced at the Rocketts Landing Collegiate Regatta. Cole was then invited to the National Invitational Rowing Championships in Worcester, MA where he represented the UR Crew Team at the National level.
We are proud to say Taylor Roberts raced in Philadelphia at the 80th Jefferson Dad Vail Regatta as the first ever para rowing champion. Dad Vail is one of the oldest and the largest collegiate regattas in the United States. We are proud to have been part of the start of collegiate para rowing.
