Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club provides equal opportunity to all members of the community to participate in the sport of rowing and paddling. It is a diverse club with members of all ages. We have something for everyone; stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and rowing.
The upcoming season will include rowing, paddling (kayak, canoe, stand-up board), and dragon boating. Our memberships are all-inclusive. That is, whatever your motivation for membership, you will have access to all of our activities – you are not limited to any one! Membership includes all necessary equipment. Boat storage (subject to availability) can be purchased by members.
The TRPC Membership Year renews annually on May 1. The on-water season runs June to September.
All TRPC memberships include:
For an extra fee private boat storage; training and off site excursions may be available.
