Safety on the water and in the boathouse is our priority. The Management Committee of the PRC has enacted a number of policies and procedures to help keep our youth and adult members safe. These policies cover many areas of safety, however the Management Committee expects all employees and users of the PRC to use Common Sense in applying existing safety procedures and policies to situations that are not covered.

The Pocock Rowing Center is a SafeSport boathouse. SafeSport aims to eliminate any form of sexual misconduct, emotional misconduct, physical misconduct, bullying, harassment and hazing in our sport. Working with the United States Olympic Committee, the SafeSport program is required by USRowing. The program is based on education and training for coaches, as well as reporting and enforcement policies that include criminal background checks of all Pocock Rowing Center staff. Learn more.
