US Rowing Safety Information

Rocket City Rowing  is committed to maintaining a safety in the boathouse and on the water. We share the Tennessee River and the Hobbs Island Channel with motorized recreational and commercial vessels as well as paddle-boarders, canoers, kayakers and swimmers. Major and minor accidents have a direct impact on the lives of those involved and some incidents can have repercussions for the entire North Alabama community.

 All Rocket City Rowers are required to view the USRowing safety video as part of their Learn-to-Row program, and at least annually thereafter.  The safety video has two main sections, one for everyone who is involved with the rowing program and the other for just coaches and administrators
