Learn to Row class

Registration is now open for Capital’s Learn to Row Program. Each class, which includes 8 sessions on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Anacostia Community Boathouse, introduces the basics of sweep rowing, such as language and handling equipment, performing rowing drills, and rowing all eight. And, you won’t meet anyone sunnier than the coaches and volunteers that run the program. 

Learn more about the program and class dates here and register NOW.  Classes fill quickly, and if your preferred dates are not available, please register for the waitlist as there is usually movement. Can’t wait to see you on the water!

 

Updated COVID-19 Policies

The below contains updated requirements for users of Anacostia Community Boathouse facilities during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.  This update was prompted by the Mayor’s Order effective March 1, 2022.  See official ACBA Covid Guidelines at https://www.anacostiaboathouse.org/

Policy: 

  1. Self-Screening: Anyone coming to the Boathouse must monitor their health and stay away if displaying any COVID symptoms. 

  2. Masks: Are no longer mandated indoors. They are optional.

  3. ACBA expects each organization to operate in accordance with the COVID-19 guidance of its governing body, local, and national authorities. 

  4. ACBA will continue to adhere to DC COVID policy and will adjust if necessary.

  5. CRC COVID Policy: CRC Members are required to follow current DC and ACBA COVID guidelines, and are highly encouraged to receive a COVID vaccine and stay current on COVID booster shots.  CRC Members are encouraged to provide proof of vaccination so that the CRC can understand its vaccination status, be prepared to respond as COVID requirements evolve, and provide status to regatta organizers in the likely event that it is required.  COVID vaccination (not booster) cards should be forwarded to annediggs@capitalrowing.org.

Update to the update to the updated mask policy…

The Mayor has reinstituted the indoor mask mandate effective through January 31, 2022. So, ACBA has reinstated the policy requiring masks in the small tent.  Our CRC in-person coached Winter Training sessions will continue.  Coaches will have the option to erg in the small tent with masks (for low intensity workouts), or move the workout outside or into the boathouse.  Stay tuned for more updates and stay well friends!

Update to the updated mask policy

ACBA has approved erging in the small tent/erg room, with the following caveats:

  • Fully vaccinated athletes may erg without masks and without social distancing. Vaccination records must be on record with our CRC COVID coordinator.  Send to annediggs@capital.org

  • Not-yet fully vaccinated athletes must wear masks and keep a six-foot distance from others while erging indoors (this is normally not possible in coached sessions). 

  • EXCEPTION: Unvaccinated erg users may go maskless outdoors if they can maintain a 12 foot distance from others.
