USRowing Hosts Annual Convention & Indoor Championships Together in Atlantic City, NJ

Dec 02, 2022

USRowing is pleased to announce that the 2023 USRowing Annual Convention (2023 Convention) will be held at the Atlantic City Convention Center (Atlantic City, NJ) from February 3-5, 2023. In addition, USRowing and the Atlantic City Indoor Rowing Association (“ACIRA”) will co-host the 2023 USRowing Atlantic City Indoor National Championships (2023 Indoors) concurrently with Convention at the same venue. This is the first time USRowing has combined these events and the first time either event has been held in-person since the onset of the pandemic. We are thrilled to gather with the entire rowing community for a weekend of learning, development, and competition!

2023 Indoors will offer both traditional race formats and new competition opportunities that welcome the growing number of indoor rowing participants across the country. In addition to 2,000-meter and marathon/half-marathon racing, 2023 Indoors will include shorter distance/duration dashes, max wattage tests, WOD-style competitions, and erg relays. When not racing, competitors can explore the ACIRA Expo to connect with rowing and health and wellness companies.

William L. Gormley, retired New Jersey state senator, has been instrumental in the development and strategy behind this newly-combined event, working closely with USRowing as well as Atlantic City community leaders and sponsors. “I would like to thank Governor Murphy and Senator Polistina for their enthusiastic support of the Indoor Rowing Championships in Atlantic City. Our lead sponsor, AC DEVCO and Chris Paladino, have been invaluable in their leadership and support.” In addition, USRowing and Senator Gormley would like to thank the following for their support:

Atlantic Shores, Lee Levine and Finn Wentworth
Harvey and Lynne Kesselman
The Atlantic City Convention Center
Doc Holland and Stan Bergman
Jon Hanson

2023 Convention will offer attendees educational sessions across three tracks: Athlete Development, Club Management, and Hands-on Learning. This year, the Hands-on Learning sessions will be workshop-based seminars targeting all areas of the rowing community.

“After two years of virtual events, we’re thrilled to gather our community for a memorable weekend at a fantastic location,” said Brett Gorman, USRowing Director of Learning & Development. “Whether learning something new to take back to their clubs or testing one's mettle by competing at Indoors, we're excited to deliver a compelling experience for everyone!”

USRowing staff will be hosting a free webinar on Thursday, November 10th at 8:00PM E.T. to answer questions and provide more information on both events. Please join us and register HERE.
