About Princeton:

America’s best minds have been visiting and meeting in Princeton for over 200 years, from the first sessions of the Continental Congress to today’s high-tech conventions. The flourishing Princeton region continues to be the choice of people who want to experience American history in a graciously current and high-tech region.

Rowing has a long tradition in the Princeton/Mercer County region. From the December night in 1776 when George Washington and his troops rowed across the Delaware River to FISA regattas on Mercer Lake, rowing has played an important part in the area’s history and identity. Long touted as the home of the first American football game between Princeton and Rutgers universities, the two universities had been racing each other for 10 years before the game.

Headquarters to USRowing and home of the U.S. National Rowing Team, the Princeton area enjoys several high-caliber rowing courses and multiple top-notch collegiate, high school, and club rowing programs.

The Princeton National Rowing Association (PNRA) operates the Casperson Rowing Center on Mercer Lake. PNRA has played host to major rowing events including FISA regattas, Olympic Team Trials, NCAA and scholastic rowing championship regattas. The Casperson Rowing Center is the only U.S. Olympic Training Site in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States.

Princeton University athletes train and compete on their own private Carnegie Lake. Historic Boathouse Row is just an hour away in Philadelphia. New York City is less than an hour away as well.
