This is where it all started.

Once Recovery on Water (ROW) began to spin off affiliate teams, our original program, which operates from the Eleanor Boathouse in Chicago’s Bridgeport community, became ROW Chicago. Today, ROW Chicago offers year-round practices both on the water and off, and we are serving our athletes in locations across the city.
