Tryout week is for any interested new rower (no experience necessary) in grades 8-12. The location is 1900 M Street, SE and upperclassmen and coaches will be at Potomac Ave Metro at 4:00 pm to walk students down to the boathouse on the first day.

Tryouts include 4 days of participation in the program after school from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. 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!
