The Shipley Rowing Academy, based out of The Shipley School is a fully comprehensive rowing program designed to develop athletes' skill level from beginner to elite juniors and advanced adults. We believe in creating champions on and off the water and we strive to help you reach your goals and maximize your full potential.

The Shipley Rowing Academy has an athlete-focused approach that focuses holistically on athlete development.  Embedded in many of our clinics are educational seminars designed to encourage proper sleep, nutrition, and mental well-being habits that not only improve performance but also healthy living.  Shipley's Rowing Academy is all inclusive and strives to provide an opportunity for players to go from grassroots to greatness on and off the water!
