The Barrie Rowing Club is a non-profit organization whose mission is to stimulate, advocate and develop the sport of rowing in the Barrie area and Simcoe County. To achieve a vibrant, strong and dynamic rowing community, we provide training programs targeted at individuals of all ages and abilities.

The Barrie Rowing Club is located in Simcoe County, at the gateway to Ontario’s tourism country, in one of the region’s most dynamic growth communities. Our club is nestled on beautiful Kempenfelt Bay, in the heart of downtown Barrie. We have 20 kilometres of rowable water and a large complement of club and privately owned touring and racing shells.






Rowing provided a place to go, a community where people cared about what I did and what I achieved.

Looking forward to the 2021 season on the water…

In planning programming for 2021 the Barrie Rowing Club will follow the direction of Rowing Canada and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
