Welcome to Arch City Rowing Club!
ACRC is a juniors rowing club made up of 13-18 year old boys and girls. We welcome rowers from all around Central Ohio and from multiple school districts, including Olentangy, Delaware, Worthington, Dublin and others. No rowing experience is needed. We invite you to learn more about us and the sport of rowing!
USRowing and the State of Ohio recently issued required safety protocols for restarting rowing in the foreseeable future. Both USRowing protocols and State of Ohio protocols require social distancing of 6 feet when participating in outdoor sports. USRowing's protocols increase the social distancing to 12 feet when training at an indoor facility. The protocols make it impossible to row team boats or conduct indoor group training, as rowers are not distanced at least 6 feet apart when seated in the boat, and 12-foot distancing in the erg room is not practical. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to suspend ACRC's summer rowing program through July 2020. The COVID-19 landscape is constantly changing, and we will reassess required safety protocols mid-July to determine whether operations might resume in August 2020. Current and future ACRC rowers and coxswains can check back here for periodic updates. Rest assured, we are keeping a close watch on new developments and recommendations from both USRowing and the State of Ohio.
