Come learn to row with DC Strokes! Our Learn-to-Row program is open to everyone and provides introductory exposure to sweep rowing in a non-pressure environment. The instructor-to-student ratio is no greater than 1 to 12 to ensure adequate participant interaction. Our experienced coaches will introduce you to the basics of the technique, equipment, language, and fun of rowing. The other objective to this class is to help you decide whether rowing is a sport you enjoy and can make the time commitment for, to be able to continue learning with our Novice program.

Withdrawal/refund policy: Class space overall is limited and the class size is designed to optimize everyone's rowing opportunity; too few people is just as problematic as too many. With this in mind, we have established the following policy for people who find they need to drop out.  Students may cancel their participation in the class up to one week prior to the class start date and receive a refund of the course fee.  Within one week from the class start date, we will refund the fee only if we can replace you in the class.  Once the class begins, no refund is available.
