Frequently Asked Questions
"I don't know how to row. Is that okay?" Absolutely! Over 90% of collegiate club rowers have little to no experience in rowing before arriving on campus. We take students from all athletic backgrounds (or lack thereof) and turn them into high performance athletes.
"When is the rowing season?" Rowers train year-round with racing seasons in the fall and spring and a winter conditioning season inside on Concept 2 Ergs (rowing machines).
"Can I balance rowing and academics?" Our rowers are student-athletes, putting "student" first with a focus on high performance both on the water and in the classroom. Roughly half of the team are engineers with 18 credit hours per semester and still maintain High GPAs.
"Where do you compete?" We travel across the country competing in both regional and national championships against colleges from coast to coast.

"It's a great art, is rowing. It's the finest there is. It's a symphony of motion. And when you're rowing well, why it's nearly perfection. And when you're near perfection, you're touching the Divine. It touches the you of yous. Which is your soul."
