"THERE'S NOTHING SO GOOD FOR THE INSIDE

OF A MAN AS THE OUTSIDE

OF A HORSE."

Water, a boat and a shared purpose combine to connect people as no other sport can. Rowing's allure is in its differences from other sports: Speed in a race comes from perfect balance, synchronicity, and shared determination. Unity begets victory on and off the water.

For teens, it is a proven path to the adult they hope to become. For breast cancer survivors, it is therapy, consolation, and healing. For others, it’s fresh air, fitness, and friendship. For all, it is a call to come together and in so doing find our best selves.

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

FOUNDATIONS

DUCTimeline.png

Since it's inception in 2002, Dallas United has grown from a single program with a competitive high school rowing team to an urban water sports center and non-profit, offering six distinct programs in competitive and recreation oar and paddle sports.

We serve people of all ages and abilities from across Dallas and the Metroplex. These programs challenge, strengthen and empower people, mentally and physically.  Both novice and experienced rowers and paddlers are welcome. 

 

DUC is a registered 501c(3) nonprofit organization and donations are tax-deductible. Our Board is 100% Volunteer Driven.

A BOATHOUSE..

FACILITY
..IS LIKE A HEART: IT'S HAPPIEST WHEN IT'S FULL

It's big. It's a bubble. It glows like a lantern. It's a landmark on the east shore of White Rock Lake, not just for its architecture, but also for the crews that call it "home". In December 2017, Dallas United Crew received approval from the Dallas Park and Recreation Board and the Dallas City Council to construct, operate and maintain an equipment shelter and other improvements on the premises the organization leases from the City. DUC operations are located at the Northern end of White Rock Lake at 417 East Lawther Drive. DUC selected a Guard-All Tension Fabric facility and it is capable of housing all of the organization's equipment, allowing DUC to conduct all operations out of one location. Being located in the flood plain of White Rock Lake, the facility is designed to handle the flooding that typically occurs and does not impact the water capacity of the White Rock watershed. The facility is equipped with Focus Rack telescoping boat racks and oar racks. These state of the art storage systems allow the maximum usage of the storage space, and allow athletes to easily and quickly access the necessary gear. In addition to the equipment shelter for the rowing and paddling gear, DUC paved the existing gravel parking lot to create an ADA parking lot. With the addition of a 150' fixed dock extension and an EZ Dock floating launch dock, we created the perfect facility for our Adaptive Rowing program. As well, the floating dock is capable of simultaneously launching or recovering up to four rowing shells. Being located on a Dallas City Park, this is all open and available to the public.
