Many of our rowers train in the summer with TBC Racing at Thompson Boat Center. The sweep (one oar per rower) racing team is divided into U23, U19 and U17 and competes regionally, nationally and internationally (Canada). The program is a big time commitment but provides a lot of racing experience and extends your rower's community beyond the Cathedral schools.
Potomac Boat Club
Potomac Boat Club (boat house under Key Bridge) offers summer youth sculling (2 oars per rower) program to 32 athletes. More information can be found here. The racing team competes regionally and nationally in both the single and team boats. The program is a big time commitment but provides sculling experience, a lot of racing and extends your rower's community beyond the Cathedral schools.
Old Dominion Boat Club
Old Dominion Boat Club (boat house in Old Town Alexandria) offers summer crew (sweep and sculling) sessions. More information can be found here.
Novice Sweep programs
Both TBC Racing and Old Dominion Boat Club offer programs for kids in grades 6-9 who want to learn sweep rowing (one oar/rower, that's the format our team rows) in preparation for joining a team.
