COVID-19 Guidance Update as of September 1, 2021

Health and safety of our members and our community is our number one priority. We are working hard on responsible and safe ways to make this happen in accordance with guidelines issued by USRowing, the State of Washington, and Thurston County Public Health and Social Services, while remembering that we are privileged and fortunate to be able to row at this time.

The boathouse is currently open to members following our COVID-19 Safety Protocol. Please check back for updates regarding coached programs for both Adult and Youth Program rowers.

Welcome to OAR

Olympia Area Rowing (OAR) is based in Olympia, Washington, USA. OAR’s mission is to promote and provide competitive and recreational rowing for adults and youth in the local community, fostering sportsmanship, teamwork, athleticism, and camaraderie.

We row year-round on Budd Inlet on the southern end of Puget Sound. The club has organized adult programs with scheduled practice times, an active group of adult recreational rowers, and a robust youth program.

OAR offers coached competitive programs for both youth and adult rowers, classes for beginning adult rowers, and membership access to OAR boats and rowing equipment.
