Welcome to the community!

The adult rowing program at DBMS is available to both novice and experienced rowers. Rowing is a lifelong sport that takes many years to master. Learn To Row classes are available in the Spring and Summer seasons. After completing an entry level class, you and your coach will discuss the next best class for you. We have different paths depending on your goals, time commitment, and skill. Some rowers choose to row recreationally and others train for competition in regattas. We are flexible and will work with you to help you meet your goals!
