This is the official site for the Washington-Lee High School rowing program started by Charlie Butt in 1949. The school is located in Arlington, VA and we row out of Potomac Boat Club in Washington, DC.
Gearing up for the 2013 season
Open Houses will be held for novices the first 4 Saturdays in October. Please show up promptly at 10am at the boathouse. The event should conclude by noon.
Our boathouse(Potomac Boat Club) is located at 3530 Water St, Washington DC 20007.
Each attending novice will be allowed to row in a boat but must pass a swim test prior to attending. Swim tests will be conducted at the school's pool Sept. 25th, 26th, and 27th from the end of school until 3:45pm each day.
The swim test consists of 3 lengths of the pool, un-timed and any stroke, treading water for 1 min and then putting on a life jacket while in the water before the tester gets out of the pool.
Please bring to the swim test:
Sweats - shirt and pants
Plastic bag for wet clothes
