Walter Johnson Crew is a scholastic rowing program made up of rowers and coxswains who attend Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, MD. With nearly 100 members, WJ Crew has achieved state and national rankings. Our program emphasizes sportsmanship, leadership, and time management skills to develop well-rounded athletes who challenge themselves and their teammates to perform at their greatest potential both on and off the water. This is reflected in their dedication to year-round training and a diverse set of interests beyond their sport, including the arts, music, and service to the community. Our rowers are members of the band, orchestra, numerous honor societies, and most take several AP classes each semester. Founded in 2003, the mission of Walter Johnson Crew is to build a team culture of personal dedication, mutual support, and shared achievement; and to train and inspire rowers and coxswains to make the choice to excel.
