Duwamish Rowing Club is a great place for youth rowers!
Learning to row is the perfect way to get outside and involved in a fun team sport with top-notch coaching from DRC’s experienced coaching staff.
Each year, a crew of up to 16 youth who want to compete in Regionals in May begin indoor intensive training in January. Our youth competitive season involves 4-6 practices per week to prepare youth to compete in regattas and championships in the Northwest.
After regionals, we will take the month of June off from Youth rowing, then start up a more recreational season from July through fall, a great time for beginners to join us.
We’re a non-profit organization and operate on a donation-only basis for our youth. In the off-season, we offer 3 coached practices per week: Monday and Wednesday from 6-8:30 pm and Saturday from noon-2:30 pm.
We also offer leadership and volunteer opportunities for our youth via engagement in DRC board activities and events (fundraising, event planning, work parties, etc.), and coxing boats for our masters rowers (ie: bossing around the adults for a change!). All experience and fitness levels are welcome. We’ll teach you everything you need to know…. and you’ll get in great shape along the way.
