Established in 2004, Freedom Rowers is a non-profit 501(c)(3) co-educational junior rowing team on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The team has almost 1,000 alumni and 30 - 40 rowers in any given season. By teaching the commitment and discipline rowing requires, the organization boosts growth and self-esteem while opening doors for scholastic, community, and personal achievement.
Freedom Rowers enjoys tremendous community support and devotes significant resources to offer need-based scholarships and keep our program fees low.
Freedom Rowers helps youth become all they have the potential to be through the sport of rowing. We encourage young people to strive and succeed. We create an environment in which they can challenge their own limits while appreciating the beauty of nature, the wind on their faces, the blisters on their hands, and the feeling of power that comes from rowing together as one.
that's both challenging and demanding, but more importantly, rewarding and fun! The sport requires hard work, dedication, mental toughness, and safety awareness. In return, rowing will give you so much more - a successful team, a fit body, and a healthy mind."
