Welcome to 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.
