Our Mission, Vision and Values


Strengthen our community by putting oars and opportunities in the hands of Dallas youth, adaptive, veteran and fitness-minded adults.

Our Values: How we bring it to life: 

Every day at White Rock Lake our mission comes to life - on and off the water. Quality programs, training, and facilities are all designed to prepare participants for competition both in life and in sport. Teamwork, commitment, excellence, individual freedom and accomplishment are all integral to the White Rock Rowing experience. We are also proud to supply financial support for athletes who do not have access or means to participate in the sport.

Our Boathouse:

Our facilities are historic structures on White Rock Lake in Dallas, TX, each painstakingly restored in partnership with the City of Dallas Parks Department. The multi-use complex is designed for all Dallas residents to enjoy. The expansive Sam Leake Boathouse is home to our rowing and fitness programs. The Filter Building, a popular lakeside rental event venue, provides revenue to support White Rock Rowing’s youth and adaptive programs, as well as direct financial aid to those in need. The original 1920’s White Rock Boathouse (nicknamed “The Boomernang”) is home to our kayaking and paddling members.
