Becoming a part of WWU rowing.
Being part of WWU Men’s Crew is being part of a sport and a team that requires dedication, physical strength, and mental fortitude. Rowing is a sport of equal parts finesse and brute force, and constitutes an experience that is guaranteed to force participants to find themselves growing through challenge and camaraderie.
The Men’s Crew Program at Western Washington University always accepting dedicated new athletes. No experience is required to join, and no physical benchmarks need to be met initially. Our team is dedicated to taking on anyone interested and working with them to bring them to the point where they will be competitive and successful in competition on the collegiate level.
Experienced rowers who have rowed in high school or with other clubs will find Western’s crew program challenging and rewarding.
New rowers will be on the water within a couple of days of joining and will be taught the tenants of rowing to compete in both Fall head races and Spring sprints.
In the Fall the team practices 4-5 days a week, and in the Winter and Spring 6 days a week in the morning. We start practice from 5am-7am Monday-Friday, and at 7am on Saturdays. Each practice is different, consisting of some skill work, and some longer piece work. There will also be assigned afternoon workouts for each week day. We train in all sorts of weather conditions, so be prepared!
*Novice rowers are slowly assimilated into the rigorous winter and spring seasons, with afternoon land practices mixed in with morning practices 2-4 times a week.
Athletes interested in more information or to schedule a time to observe a morning practice should get in touch with the team at email@example.com. You can also check out the Men’s Crew booth at the annual WWU Info Fair in Red Square. We will be hosting an informational meeting the first Wednesday of school at 7 pm in Academic West for anyone interested.
