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 over 33 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
