Welcome to Berkshire Community Rowing

Berkshire Community Rowing (BCR, also BRASS) offers rowing experiences and coaching for people of all ages. We row in individual and team boats, for both recreation and competition. Since 1995, our not-for-profit organization has helped hundreds of people discover their ability to move a shell through the water, or rediscover their love of this. The Berkshire Community Rowing boathouse is located within Burbank Park at Onota Lake, off Valentine Road in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
