Welcome to Washington Rowing School

We had good fun at our National Learn to Row Day with over 100 folks participating. Now it’s time to come really learn to row in an eight! Our Community Challenge starts July 30 with our Kick-Off that weekend on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Community groups and individuals learn to row in eights through August and compete for community bragging rights at our Bladensburg Races on August 27. New rowers are welcome to join in anytime. See classes page for more information. Sign up here.

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 with an invigorating workout. Founder and coach Cindy Cole brings over 40 years of competitive rowing and coaching experience. She 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.

Our new website is under construction. Classes and programs are being updated and posted here.
