The Three Rivers Rowing Association (TRRA) is a membership organization offering rowing and dragon boating programs to anyone living in the Pittsburgh region. Founded in 1984, TRRA has grown into one of the largest community-based rowing and paddling clubs in the United States. Its programs serve people of all skill levels from a broad range of social and economic backgrounds, and participants range in age from teenagers to senior citizens. TRRA offers lessons for beginners in rowing and dragon boating, and provides coached programs for more advanced rowers and paddlers. TRRA facilities include two boathouses on the Allegheny River just north of downtown Pittsburgh. The Lambert Boathouse is located on Washington’s Landing (formerly known as Herr’s Island) and the Millvale Training Center is located on the adjacent river bank. The boathouses contain weight rooms, locker rooms, training rooms with ergometers (rowing machines), and storage bays holding rowing shells. The Millvale complex also houses indoor rowing tanks for training purposes. B hosts several competitive events each year, including the nationally recognized Head of the Ohio Regatta every October. Jenn Grieb has been with TRRA for seven years; she joined the organization as the Executive Assistant in 2010 and became Executive Director in the summer of 2015.
