About Capital Juniors


Capital Juniors was created by Capital Rowing Club in the Fall of 2010 to bring rowing opportunities to the diverse community of the Anacostia River and the larger Washington, DC area. Within Washington, DC, only one public high school, Woodrow Wilson, offers rowing as an extracurricular activity. This makes rowing virtually inaccessible to youth in other parts of the city. Rowing is a multidimensional sport that teaches discipline, camaraderie, fitness, work ethic, and teamwork and provides a path for students to enter college. Capital Juniors seeks to provide an opportunity for more high school students to realize these benefits.


Capital Juniors consists of both novice and competitive teams. Novice rowers must be in enrolled in 9th-12th grade (or be over the age of 13) and do not need to have any previous rowing experience.  Competitive rowers should also be of high school age and should have at least one year of rowing experience to be considered for the team.

Important Info


If you would like to commit for the fall season, please register here.

These must be turned prior to participation on the water


ALL ROWERS:
  • WHEN: The fall season will run from Tuesday September 4th until Friday November 9th with practice from 4:30pm until 6:30pm Monday through Friday. As normal, the first week of practice will be “tryout week,” after which we expect athletes to commit for the season. During this time (Sept. 4-7), anyone can try out the sport to see if they like it, without having to commit.
  • WHERE: 1900 M St. SE Washington DC 20003.  Many rowers meet at Potomac Ave. Stations between 4 and 4:15 to walk to the boathouse.  A coach will be accompanying folks from the metro to the boathouse during the first week of practice.
  • HOW MUCH: For the fall season, there will be a $250 suggested donation to the program for each participant. Again, this is a suggested donation – we understand that financial circumstances may not make this possible, and will not let money get in the way of rowing. We will send out the registration link in the next couple of days.
  • SWIM TEST: Sept. 11 between 4-5 pm at the Eastern Market Community Pool (635 N. Carolina Ave. SE Washington DC)
  • RACES?: 
    • 9/29/12: Head of the Anacostia (All rowers)
    • 10/7/12: Occoquan Challenge, Occoquan VA (Varsity only)
    • 10/14/12: Occoquan Chase,  Occoquan VA  (Varsity only)
    • 11/3-4/12: Head of the Occoquan, Occoquan VA  (Varsity only)

VARSITY/RETURNING ROWERS:
  • Your tests will be during the first week of practice.  The expectations are below:
    • Girls: Run 3 miles in 33 minutes or less AND 10 continuous push-ups (with knees off the ground).
    • Boys: Run 3 miles in 26 minutes or less AND be able to sit and touch your toes for 10 seconds (continuously).
  • Advertise! Gets your friends/ siblings, neighbors etc. to come try out the sport.  Anyone between the ages of 13-18 is eligible.
NEW ROWERS:


Welcome! We are so glad that you are interested in joining our club.  Some of you have rowed before, but many of you haven’t.  The purpose of the fall season is to teach everyone how to row, to have practice in a race situation and to prepare for sprint races in the spring.
  • WHAT TO WEAR: Wear athletic cloths that are close-fitting, but comfortable.  Be aware that you will get a little wet (from oars splashing, not swimming), so be sure that you are comfortable with your clothes getting wet.  Also, bring socks, athletic shoes and water everyday.
  • EXPECTATIONS: Crew is a very time intensive sport, but is also very fun and rewarding.  Daily attendance and a year-round commitment is expected (there is flexibility with winter sports) so that we can have a fun and successful spring season.
