Buffalo Bayou Rowing Center

Developing tomorrow's leaders through rowing
boathouse rendition
Imagine this state of the art boathouse along the banks of Houston's Buffalo Bayou. From our proposed facility, Houstonians will enjoy access to rowing, kayaking or canoeing on Buffalo Bayou via Buffalo Bayou Rowing Center.

Buffalo Bayou Rowing Center is the 501(c)(3) non-profit bringing Olympic-style rowing to middle and high school youth of downtown Houston. We are committed to the development of tomorrow's leaders through Olympic-style rowing with future plans of a community boathouse with event and meeting space. We hope you will help share and help our vision for Houston's youth come to life.

Meet BBRC

Meet Mr. Buffalo - our offical mascot. He sports the BBRC colors: lime green and a deep blue. Oar designs are unique to each team. BBRC has designed a green oar with two traditional blue stripes and pays homage to Buffalo Bayou between the stripes.  Look for Mr. Buffalo around Houston when we do our Mr. Buffalo Scavenger hunt! Stay tuned for details!

Our Board

When Michaela's college roommates introduced her to crew at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 2008, she was hooked. She continued her rowing career at Texas A&M University, later returning to coach at Embry-Riddle. Today, Michaela still rows competitively and coaches as a certified Level 2 USRowing Coach.  Off the water, Michaela has experience in aviation safety and non-profit development and is a yoga instructor. A recent graduate from South Texas College of Law Houston, Michaela is a practicing attorney and mediator in addition to her work at BBRC.
When Greg joined his first rowing team in 2000 at Texas A&M University- Galveston, he fell in love with the sport.  Greg then continued to found the team at Texas A&M University- College Station. Greg now returns to TAMU-Galveston as their Head Coach. He is a Level 2 USRowing Certified Rowing Coach. His passion for the sport and its lesson allows him to use rowing to develop and leadership programs for corporations around the world. When Greg is not coaching or rowing, he owns and operates a custom woodworking business, Wood by Wood.
After joining her high school’s rowing team in Chicago, Chantal found her passion in the sport of rowing and was encouraged to pursue it. She was recruited to row at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX where she rowed for four years and competed in regattas throughout the United States. Some of her fondest memories are with team mates working together for the same goal. She considers rowing to be a life-long sport and believes others should be have the same opportunity. When not on the water or erg she can be found chasing a toddler and enjoying all that Houston has to offer.
We are *sweeping* the Houston area for a 4th board member.  Interested?  Email us at info@BuffaloBayouRC.org for more information!
The trick was to recognize a good thing when you saw it, no matter how odd or worthless it might at first appear, no matter who else might just walk away and leave it behind
