Welcome to the Tiberias Rowing Club
The Tiberias Rowing Club (“TRC”) was founded in historic Tiberias, Israel on the west shore of Sea of Galilee or lake “Kinneret.” Tiberias is known for a glorious heritage and history that is sacred to three great religions of the world. It is a truly magnificent and scenic place to recreationally row, compete, and celebrate the sport of rowing.
TRC was founded at the end of the Israeli War of Independence. It was established by Zionist visionaries and brave warriors, who were water sports enthusiasts with a strong belief in academic pursuit. The club was thereby founded on the values of education and sports, aimed to educate athletes for achievement and excellence that would benefit the Israeli State, which had just been founded. It was a bold endeavor built on a purpose to shape and regroup the population, and to create a new melting pot that would be based on the values and principles of fair sportsmanship and contribution to the community.
To this day, the TRC has proudly educated generations of elite and recreational rowers, that have achieved national and international success bringing great honor to Tiberias and to the State of Israel. The club has also hosted many national and international competitions. It is additionally a rowing home for elite and recreational rowers from around the world.
