AWL DC ROWING
In Partnership with DC Strokes & Anacostia Community Boathouse
There is a place for all athletes to join a dynamic team and learn the exciting sport of rowing. Our inclusive program is led by AWL DC Head Coach Patrick Johnson, who is also Athletes Without Limits National Rowing Director. Athletes first learn sweep and sculling rowing on the indoor rowing machines and move to the boats when ready with opportunities to compete in US Rowing and Inas events.
Interested athletes should review the the Athletes Without Limits eligibility page about the Inas sports classes for Intellectual Disability, Down Syndrome and Autism+.
