The Spokane River Rowing Association (SRRA) has provided rowing opportunities for the people of the Inland Empire and Greater Spokane area since 2003. In 2024 we relocated our rowing venue to Silver Lake near the town of Medical Lake, south of Spokane west of Interstate 90. See our FAQS tab for directions to this site. We are operating under permit from the WA Department of Fish and Game at the public boat launch at Silver Lake.

SRRA offers an inclusive and welcoming rowing community for people of all backgrounds and abilities. Our mission is to teach rowing skills, foster teamwork, develop friendships, and enhance physical and mental well-being through rowing. We are committed to community service and support environmental stewardship on the waterways of the greater Spokane area.

One of the original Olympic disciplines, rowing develops strength, grace, endurance and team work while providing a chance to be out-of-doors. Rowing uses all the major muscle groups, it develops coordination and conditioning better than most other sports. It is an activity that can be learned and enjoyed at almost any age and at any level of experience or physical ability.

SRRA provides beginners with Learn-to-Row classes and novice and experienced rowers with opportunities to enjoy the water while making friends and continuing to learn the rowing stroke. Competitive rowing is also an option. We strive to make rowing accessible to people of every background and ability, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in all we do. SRRA encourages all interested rowers to become involved regardless of financial ability. Contact srra@spokanerowing.org for more information.

If you are planning on visiting Spokane we would love for you to be our guest! Check the calendar for practice dates and times, download our SRRA Guest Rowing Form and the SRRA Waiver and email us at srra@spokanerowing.org to let us know when to expect you.

SRRA is a volunteer run organization, and we believe there is a bright future for expanding rowing opportunities in the greater Spokane area, especially in providing youth and adaptive rowing opportunities. SRRA’s vision includes securing a rowing venue on the Spokane River in the Millwood area in order to reach a more diverse population in the Great Spokane area.

Help SRRA expand access to rowing in the Inland Northwest. Contributions go toward providing financial assistance to underrepresented groups, equipment purchase and repairs, and eventually acquiring our own boat house.
