Welcome to the West Side Rowing Club (WSRC)
WSRC was founded in 1912 and recently celebrated its centennial year of teaching the "art of rowing" to the youth of Western New York. We are proud of our rich heritage and looking forward to continuing a long and successful tradition in the rowing community for many years to come. Our rowers travel from many areas of Western New York to row at WSRC, including Lewiston, Youngstown, Lockport, Clarence, West Seneca, Orchard Park, and Hamburg. Many of our rowers car pool with other rowers from their area.
- The West Side Rowing Club regrets to inform that it has lost a long-time friend, past president and dedicated supporter. William J. Cotter passed away on March 31, 2015 after a brief illness. Bill was a man of great character and he possessed a relentless love for the sport of rowing and for WSRC. Bill was a past president of WSRC and was instrumental in rebuilding the club at the present location on Porter Avenue, following a fire in 1975 at the old rowing club located on Bird Island. Bill’s support and leadership will be sorely missed.
