The HRA High School (part of the Juniors) Program serves young adults in grades 9-12 (roughly 15-18 years old). This program is recognized by Volusia County Schools as a varsity lettering sport and has participants from schools all over the greater Volusia County area. The team provides opportunities to compete, and have a great time, at regattas during the scholastic year.

Middle School

The HRA Middle School (part of the Juniors) Program serves young adults in grades 6-8 (roughly 12-14 years old). This program is geared towards building fundamental rowing capabilities and having a lot of fun while doing it!

One Team Pulling together

Halifax Rowing Association (HRA) grew from the determined interest of a group of ex-collegiate rowers. HRA was incorporated as a not-for-profit Florida Corporation in 1994, and the HRA boathouse was erected in partnership with the City of Daytona Beach soon thereafter in 1996. The HRA boathouse is located on City Island in beautiful Daytona Beach (FL) and has direct access to the Halifax River (the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway).

HRA’s mission is to foster the sport of rowing in Daytona Beach and the broader Volusia County area. HRA is dedicated to offering programs for rowers, but also to building awareness of rowing for those new to the sport. HRA strives to cultivate a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone involved and interested in pursuing the sport of rowing.

HRA currently offers rowing programs for adult (masters) and junior (middle and high school) rowers. HRA also supports Brooks Rehabilitation, who offer and manage rowing for adaptive rowers. Finally, HRA supports Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s rowing program, who operate out of the HRA boathouse.
