  • youth athletics and academics for Junior rowers from all DC wards
  • active use of the Anacostia River
  • rowing as a multi-generational sport, life-long fitness and competition
  • adaptive competition for rowers with disabilities
  • community development of the Capitol Hill neighborhood

Capital seeks sponsors throughout the year. Our events offer sponsors multiple opportunities to engage with local and national audiences.
