Who Are We?

Watuppa Rowing Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, provides opportunities for high school students in the Greater Fall River area to learn to row, race competitively, and improve post-secondary prospects for students. South Watuppa Pond is one of the few rowing sites in the United States approved for Olympic trials. We want to partner and share our water with all rowers, clubs, and schools in the area.

We began our life as the Bay Coast Rowing Center in 2018 but have re-branded as the Watuppa Rowing Center to highlight our unique location. Watuppa Rowing Center is conveniently located on the South Watuppa Pond in Fall River, Massachusetts.  To our west is Providence, Rhode Island, to our north is Boston Massachusetts, and to our south is Newport, Rhode Island—all 55 miles or less away.  The pond consists of 1,550 acres of non-tidal water.

From teens to masters, military vets to para athletes, to those training for the highest level of competition, we are building an inclusive and exciting rowing center. We're new...come grow with us!
