Group Practices

Practices are held on the Schuylkill and launch from the Triathlon Beach near the Adaptive Rowing Boathouse on MLK Drive, near the intersection of MLK and Black Road. We hold morning, evening, and weekend practices and these practices are announced on TeamSnap. If you’re interested in trying outrigger, please contact Jill Denyes at or message us on Facebook @PhiladelphiaOutrigger
