Try Outs

Why tryout for Capital Juniors? Watch this!


The fall is our recruiting season. Interested participants can tryout during our annual tryout week.

Tryout week for any interested new rower (no experience necessary) will take place from August 28, 2017 – September 1, 2017 at 1900 M Street, SE. Upperclassmen and coaches will be at Potomac Ave Metro at 4:00pm to walk students down to the boathouse on the first day.  There will be no practice on Wednesday August 30th.

Tryouts include 4-days of participation in the program after-school from 4:30-6:30pm. Participation in all 4-days is highly encouraged. The week gives students the chance to learn the basics of rowing, some small relays, a friendly chat with a coach, and lots of fun team-building games!

Don’t consider yourself an athlete? That’s ok! We can teach you to be an athlete even if you’ve never tried a sport before, haven’t considered yourself successful in sports, or just want to try something new!
