The Oregon Association of Rowers (OAR) is a non-profit Masters rowing club serving the Eugene/Springfield area in the Willamette Valley since 1990. Our mission is to advance the sport of rowing for competition, fitness, and recreation. We are located on Dexter Lake in Lowell State Park. We offer both sweep rowing and sculling for competitive rowers and those focusing primarily on fitness and recreation.
Every year in April, OAR hosts the Covered Bridge Regatta. This regatta offers 2K races for Collegiate and Junior rowers and 1K races for Masters.
