CYR’s mission is to teach the sport of rowing to the Charlotte Areas youth. We inspire our athletes through the sport of rowing by teaching them teamwork, leadership, discipline, and responsibility. These skills not only produce best in class athletes, but future adults. CYR is a community built on relationships, fun, and hard work that will continue for years to come.

CYR is a parent-driven organization, from volunteers who serve as our Board of Directors, to the regatta food team, each volunteer helps CYR run smoothly and efficiently for the athletes. CYR is a growing organization that requires a lot of complex logistics for making things happen which is why we need every family to contribute. Volunteering gives parents the opportunity to meet each other, build the parent community, develop an appreciation for how hard the athletes and their coaches work every day, and have fun.
Each family must volunteer 12 hours for the entire year (6 per semester). If volunteer requirements are not met there will be a $500 donation requirement.
How to Volunteer?
A Signup Genius will come out at the beginning of each season to signup for volunteer opportunities. You and your team will be responsible for getting the job done.
CYR is a not-for-profit 501c(3) organization. All donations are fully deductible to the extent allowed by law, and qualifies for employer matching gift programs, which may double your contribution.
