Thank you to the Harry & Sylvia Livingston Philanthropic Fund recently donated $2500 to Coventry Lake Community Rowing to support the developing high school program at Coventry High School (CHS). The donation will primarily be spent on ergs and other items the team needs to help the growing competitiveness of the high school team which will become an official CHS club in the spring of 2020.
Please sign up below to be added to our Youth Email Contact List. Information will be available about this program near the end of April early May as the weather becomes more favorable to row.
If you would like to get on our email list, please contact us and let us know a little about your interests!
Don’t wait to sign up for our summer rowing programs. There is something for everyone! Youth classes, endurance sessions for high school rowers, adult sculling & sweep and more!
CHS Crew Club practice starts this Tuesday at 5:30. So exciting to start another season!!!! See you then!
I have lived on this lake since 1997. UConn Men, UConn Women, EO Smith crew teams have been enjoying Coventry Lake and growing their programs all along since that purchase. I have two children and often dreamed of them rowing with the knowledge that there was no team in our town… until now! With the help of UConn Men, UConn Women, EO Smith crew teams, CLCR was able to pilot a Coventry Crew Team. Our roster 17 students strong persevered through what I think was the worst spring season weather-wise and had a very successful season. Each student came with a variety of skill sets that allowed them to learn crew pretty easily. Really looking forward to summer rowing now and so happy to have crew in Coventry!
CLCR has acquired an eight and a four that will be available for sweep rowing this summer. We are looking to find out who is interested in a program that includes adult sweep rowing and what level of program(s) we should include. Please fill out this form and let us know a little bit about yourself and what you would be interested in:

Now that the water is, well, thawed and the days are warmer, construction on our new boat racks has started. These racks will be the home of our fleet and we will have a boat ramp for our launches. Thank you Ron, Ed, Coventry Rec Department and all the members who have helped make this possible.
