Welcome to the Washington Rowing School
The Washington Rowing School was created to make the sport of rowing accessible to everyone. Whether you crave a new physical outlet or are looking for more enjoyable ways to spend time on the water -- rowing combines grace, skill and balance while giving you a full physical workout. Founder and coach Cindy Cole brings 40 years of competitive rowing and coaching experience and is now offering one-on-one and small group instruction for beginners and experienced rowers alike. Classes and individual instruction are available for sweep rowing or sculling.
Learn to row or perfect your technique on the tranquil waters of the Anacostia River. All classes launch from the Bladensburg Waterfront Park just outside of Washington, DC. View the current list of class times or contact us today to sign up.This Saturday, August 30 is our very own Bladensburg Races! Crews consisting of primarily novice rowers from our local community will meet up and race down the same Muddy Mile that ships traveled at the time of the Battle of Bladensburg. Rumor has it there will be a Mayors' Eight of local political leadership!
Learn to Scull classes are scheduled through September 8. It's a great time of year to learn to row! Our last Weekend Intensive Learn to Scull class is over the Labor Day weekend. Get started to enjoy the beautiful summer and fall weather from a rowing shell! Register here.
