Carnegie Lake Rowing Association

Celebrating Community Rowing in Princeton, NJ Since 1985

Carnegie Lake Rowing Association is a community rowing association that has access to Lake Carnegie and Princeton University facilities and equipment by a special arrangement with the University. Our members are of all ages and have a wide range of rowing skills. The program operates year-round and includes a Learn-to-Row Program along with regular tank and lake workouts tailored for rowers of different levels of ability. Sweep oar rowing comprises the bulk of club activity, although the membership also includes scullers.

  • When joining as a new member, what do you consider an "Experienced Rower"?

    To join as a new member, you must have experience as a rower or coxswain with the sport of rowing in a shell with sliding seats. Your experience need not necessarily be extensive and you don't need to be highly skilled. Most importantly, you need to know "how to row"; knowledge of procedures, nomenclature, commands and technique. You should also be in good physical condition and able to lift and carry 30 pounds over your head. If you join as an experienced rower and our coach determines that your experience is not adequate, we will suggest that you join our annual Learn-to-Row Program.

  • How do I pay?

    Pay online at using major credit or debt cards. Invoice and balance due is available in member profiles. Payment accepted anytime, but to reduce transaction fees pay in response to an email reminder that occurs about monthly.

  • How do you fold a fitted sheet?

    It's impossible. You can't. Or maybe you can; look.
