A Boathouse Without Walls.

Whether you are a first time novice or an experienced rower
in need of specialized attention, BLJ Community Rowing can provide the instruction you are looking for.

Beginners learn all aspects of sculling (sweeping—coming soon). In depth instruction includes a breakdown of the stroke, how to get in and out of the boat, the rules of the river and the many technical aspects of the sport in an easy-to-understand way.

More advanced students focus on technique and building fitness, with special attention paid to growing the abilities of each rower.

Group coaching includes rowers of varying levels of experience placed together in boats to encourage growth in each rower individually and to enhance their performance as a team. Form and technique are continuously assessed and feedback is provided to help each athlete progress at their own pace.

For rowers interested in competing, individual coaching can help them prepare for the many regattas held in the Philadelphia area and beyond.

Join us for our upcoming End of Season Cocktail Party on Saturday, November 4 @ 7pm at InRiva. Purchase tickets here!
