Potomac Men’s Sweep

About Us

Potomac Men’s Sweep welcomes athletes prepared to commit to excellence on a daily basis. Training is structured to allow oarsmen and coxswains to continue to develop physically and technically – allowing athletes to maintain their ‘peak’ level of fitness, or even improve it, as long as they’re willing to put in the work. The team offers the opportunity to continue the pursuit of rowing greatness and the thrill of competition while offering the flexibility required for athletes to balance work and life demands. We compete and win against the best crews in the country over any distance – head races, 2000m, 1000m – and any category – open, intermediate, masters, senior masters, AA-F.

We train primarily in coxed eights and fours March through November. Practices continue throughout the winter, and rely on erg testing and a comprehensive conditioning program to select and prepare athletes for competition and develop and improve fitness throughout the year. In order to ensure individualized coaching attention and maintain a high standard of rowing, the team is limited in size and reserves the right to invite oarsmen and coxswains ready to compete and win at high levels of national and international competition.
