Charlotte Youth Rowing 2015-2016

Home Page

                                        Charlotte Youth Rowing is Charlotte's first and largest youth rowing team.  
We are supported by the Siskey YMCA in Matthews, NC and row out of Catawba Yacht Club on Lake Wylie.  
CYR is a club team, with over 20 NC and SC schools represent on the team.   The team has grown constantly since its creation in 2000. We welcome male and female rowers of any experience level from middle school through 12th grade.

Check out CYR Rowing through videos produced by CYR Rowers: Eddie Mansius & Remi Bellefleur
