Become a National Champion. No Experience Necessary.


GT Crew is an intercollegiate, co-ed team that races throughout the Southeast and across the country against teams like Clemson, Purdue, and UGA. The student-run team was officially founded in 1986 and is the largest sports club on campus with approximately 70 athletes. We are also one of the most successful organizations at Georgia Tech, consistently earning medals at the Dad Vail national championship regatta for more than 13 years in a row.

While many of our rowers were competitive high-school athletes, more than 90 percent of our team had no previous rowing experience prior to joining GT Crew. As long as you have the desire to improve your physical fitness, there can be a place for you on crew. We’re open to all sorts of athletes — heavyweight, lightweight, tall, short, men and women. We are also always looking for coxswains to steer and motivate boats on the water.
