Welcome to Rowing at DBMS!

We strive for growth and the enjoyment of rowing for all of our participants, while fostering an attitude of humility and gratitude for our opportunities, respect for each other, and stewardship of our equipment, campus, and the Bay.

We are a community committed to coaching, training, and developing the skills of all rowers. We teach and train year-round in our newly completed Rowing Center and on the water during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. Beginners of all ages are welcome and encouraged to join a class at DBMS. We are fortunate to have our own indoor rowing tanks, a large ergometer training room, and a fleet of both sculling and sweep boats. There is opportunity for everyone to join our community and find out what is so special about rowing.

7th and 8th Grade Rowing

7th and 8th grade rowers had 1-week session on the water August 31-September 4th and it was great seeing the kids squeak out an additional rowing session before the start of school. As we shift our focus for the fall to our high school rowers, we are unable to provide any additional programming for middle schoolers due to restrictions posed by COVID-19 guidelines and single-occupancy equipment. Our single shells will be in use 6 days per week by the high school team and due to restrictions on group size, we cannot offer land training between 3:15 and 7pm. We will update the website with any changes to our fall plan and we are hopeful that there will be some winter training opportunities for middle schoolers this year.
