The Farmington Valley Rowing Association Inc. (FVRA) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) member and volunteer supported organization that provides a comprehensive community-rowing program designed for a diverse population. FVRA’s Board of Directors (BOD) is responsible for the overall management of program offerings, club finances, and daily operations.
A member of the USRowing, FVRA was founded in 1982, in part, by parents of children who were on the Simsbury High School crew team. FVRA was formally incorporated in 1989 to promote the sport of rowing in the Farmington Valley area through recreational, competitive, and educational programs. FVRA rows on the Farmington River in Windsor, CT.
FVRA is proud to offer a sport for both experienced rowers and those new to the sport. The club provides learn-to-row opportunities as well as sculling and sweep programs for novice, intermediate, and recreational rowers. For competitive rowers, the women’s and men’s racing teams offer an advanced program with opportunities to compete in sprint and distance race events during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
