A sculling club for adults

in the western Chicago suburbs

HCR is a diverse membership of recreational and competitive scullers.


We welcome all skill levels, from the Learn To Row novice to the seasoned master. 

We also are committed to the stewardship of the Des Plaines. We hold an annual clean-up day to remove plastics from the river.
