This FREE clinic will introduce participants to the sport of rowing on the Anacostia River.
They will tour the park's boathouse facility, learn the basic stroke on a rowing machine, and join others for an introductory row in an eight-person rowing shell. Throughout their visit, participants will meet Washington Rowing Club rowers and learn about the pleasures of rowing on the Anacostia River out of Bladensburg Waterfront Park.
Washington Rowing School rowers enjoy the Anacostia River's flora, fauna, and pleasant waters out of Bladensburg on a daily basis. Rowing is a health-promoting activity that is enjoyed by WRS' youth and adult programs. Our rowers also participate in park activities such as Earth Day cleanup, Bike to Work Day, and community outreach festivals. Our National Learn to Row Day Clinic is our opportunity to introduce community members to the Anacostia river and the joys of rowing on it.
