Rowing is a sport like no other, a true challenge to the mind and body. At its best, rowing is all about individuals working in perfect rhythm to make their boat move amazingly fast. 

The Bass Street YMCA branch is home to our rowing programs and the Y Quad Cities Rowing team. Located downtown Moline right on the Sylvan Slough of the Mississippi River, this branch has some great views!
