Community Rowing Groups

Sculling Learn to Row

We offer summer one week long learn to row sessions.  These sessions are for adults only and focus on sculling (rowing with two oars).   For full details about our next learn to row session, see our Learn to Row Page. 

Evening Sculling Program

All summer long, members are welcome to attend our evening sculling (rowing with two oars) program.  People are also welcome to drop in to this program for $20 a session.  Drop in fees can be applied to a membership if you choose to join after dropping in.  This is also our only program that is available for rowers under the age of 18.  Our evening sculling program is held on Monday and Thursday evenings from 5:00-7:00pm all summer.  The program is held at the Chancellor's Point Recreation area of Historic St. Mary's City and focuses on sculling skill development.  At Chancellor's point, SMRA has a quad, a double, a few racing singles and two stable singles for learning to row.   All levels of scullers are welcome to attend.   For more information contact Rachel Boarman at
