The Sylvan Boathouse is home to the Y Quad Cities Rowing program. Rowing is a sport for all ages and abilities. Rowing is an excellent form of exercise, requiring coordinated muscle action that involves every large muscle group in the body. You can achieve superb aerobic fitness and core strength, tone your upper and lower body and promote great joint health through the wide range of motion rowing requires. The beautiful Mississippi River setting soothes the soul and invigorates the spirit. Y Quad Cities Rowing offers programs for recreation and for competition for ages 14 and above.
