COMPETITIVE JUNIOR ROWING

JOIN OUR PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE

Newport Sea Base Rowing (NSBR) is a program that is administered by the Orange County Boy Scouts of America (OCBSA). Through our association with the OCBSA, we are a nonprofit organization that provides unique opportunities to promote personal and community growth through teamwork, discipline, and physical fitness to all ages and all skill levels. We are located at the Newport Sea Base in Newport Beach. With a fantastic coaching team and a low coach-to-athlete ratio we focus on giving our athletes the best experiences and the best opportunities to succeed. Since our inception in 2014 we have a proven record of developing athletes for collegiate programs and also for US national teams from youth through Olympic levels. Our reputation for excellence and outstanding accomplishments in the sport is making NSBR the best place to row in Orange County.
