Summer Learn-to-Row Program

Row like a Viking!

Whitman Crew is one of the fastest scholastic programs in the nation. With over 30 years of competition, it is the largest and most successful co-ed sport at Whitman and competes at the highest levels nationally. Every year, our graduates go on to race at the collegiate level and many are recruited by DI universities. We row out of Thompson Boat Center on the Potomac River, along the iconic Georgetown waterfront with other competitive programs sponsored by local public and independent schools. 

This summer we're hosting a Learn-to-Row program for rising 7th, 8th, or 9th graders during two one-week sessions. The first session will run June 21 - 25 and the second session will be July 12 - 16.  

Registration is now open . Click the link below to get started.

Introducing Access-to-Crew

Whitman Crew is excited to announce the launch of Access to Crew, a new program designed to support the sport of rowing--both at Whitman and beyond in our local community. The program will:

  • provide scholarships to Whitman kids from economically diverse backgrounds;
  • support the excellent work of Baltimore Community Rowing's Reach High Rowing Program; and
  • create opportunities for our athletes to get involved with volunteering.

Please donate now to give economically diverse students a chance to experience the life-changing impact of crew. Our goal is to raise $20,000 and we're already half-way there! Donations are entirely voluntary.
