the League

Premier Rowing League is about defining the BEST rowers in the world.

On the water rowers.

Indoor Rowers.


We want them all.

Men and Women competing together, divided up in three divisions, working to win points, and a league championship!

The Premier Rowing League has no defined rowing times or distances.


Each week the distance, time, and number of races changes.  

There are no age or gender handicaps.

A departure from traditional rowing- 

Premier Rowing provides weekly, head to head matchups against other opponents to earn points in the standings.

The standings will reflect total points earned, by all three divisions totaled together.

At the end of the regular season, the top teams will face off in the playoffs, and will feature best of our league, facing off to be crowned league champion.



The League is based in Baltimore, Maryland
