Des Moines Rowing

Des Moines Rowing (DMR) is a non-profit corporation created to promote the sport of rowing in Central Iowa. The club was founded in 1983 and hosted its first regatta that same year. Although most members live in the Des Moines metropolitan area, the club does include rowers from further Central Iowa communities. We offer recreational and competitive rowing opportunities through our Novice, Masters, Youth and Accessible Membership Initiative (AMI) programs.
