Offering the sport of rowing to Litchfield County for almost 40 years


The Litchfield Hills Rowing Club was founded in 1978 to promote the sport of rowing for residents of the Litchfield Connecticut area. Through it’s sponsorship of both high school and masters programs, the club is dedicated to making the great sport of rowing available to all individuals who have the desire to participate.

LHRC isn’t like a lot of other rowing programs, we’re a lot smaller than other teams but these rowers are tough, they’re gritty, and they aren’t going to give up no matter what. That’s something that I have brought with me to my training every single day in college, and it has brought me much success on the water, on the erg, and in the classroom. I went from being rather soft to being tough and ready to take on whatever physical or mental challenges that I am faced with. I still make sure to maintain relationships with some of the incredibly supportive and helpful rowers on the team, both on the juniors and the masters teams. LHRC shaped me into a hard worker, a physically more fit person, and a leader. I wouldn’t trade my experience with the team for the world.
