Argo Pond has hosted nationally competitive rowing since University of Michigan Men's Crew Team began rowing here in 1976. The Ann Arbor Rowing Club (then known as Arbor Rowing) joined them in the early 1980s with just a handful of rowers and boats stored on outdoor racks. The club has grown quickly, becoming more competitive. UM and AARC were joined by Ann Arbor Huron High School's rowing team in 1993 and Ann Arbor Pioneer High School's rowing team in 1999. AARC's current boathouse was constructed in 2001/2002 under a 15 year renewable lease with the City of Ann Arbor. AARC currently has 150-175 active members at any given time, with 8 rowing coaches and 6 sculling coaches under hire.
