We are Dallas United Crew!

Thank you for considering us during North Texas Giving Day.

Dallas United Crew is a North Texas powerhouse non-profit that hosts a half a dozen in-house water sport communities to serve hundreds of athletes and enthusiasts alike in the greater Dallas area.

-For the Youth, DUC offers competitive rowing teams for boys and girls ranging from middle school through high school, along with learn to row opportunities throughout the summer. This squad operates at the highest level for Junior rowing in the United States under the governing body of USRowing. These young athletes compete across the country from California to Massachusetts to Florida, and of course right here in Dallas on White Rock Lake. Over the past 20 years, DUC has brought home dozens of state championship titles and can be perennially found at the Youth National Championship.

-Part of building the power house Youth program is our RowDallas program, which is our spearhead toward making rowing more accessible to all Dallas youth, and to create environments to succeed on and off the water. We work in tandem with Dallas School Districts and the Dallas Parks and Recreation department to eliminate the barriers to participation in this great sport.

-For Adults, the DUC Masters Program is a growing organization for athletes 19- 99+ to get on the water and enjoy White Rock Lake in a brand-new way. The masters are also a highly competitive group, but absolutely no experience is necessary to get in on the low impact high energy action.

-Dallas United Crew is proud to be one of a handful of clubs nationwide to host Veteran specific and Adaptive specific rowing programs to offer a network of support and stability, while building health and wellness on and off the water.

- In tandem with our rowing teams, Dallas United also hosts two amazing Dragon Boating teams for the Dallas area. Our competitive team, DUC Delite is the premier competitive Dallas Dragon Boating team- engaging in uplifting community practice and racing all over the country!

-Another cornerstone of our community is DUC Pink, a dragon boat team dedicated to breast cancer survivors. The Pink community promotes an empowered and healthy life after breast cancer, with commitments to fitness and wellbeing to live life with strength on and off the water.
