Want to be a national champion?

Georgia Tech Crew is recruiting for its 2016-17 season. We are seeking tall, strong athletes along with smaller athletes (around 125lbs) for coxswains. With over 80 rowers and over 50 national championship medals, Georgia Tech Crew is one of the largest and most successful organizations on campus.

No experience is necessary! In fact over 90% of our team had never touched an oar prior to joining. You can go from complete beginner to national champion in just a year, and even a few future national team rowers have taken their first strokes with us. While many successful rowers competed in sports such as swimming, cross country, and soccer in high school, our team members have come from varied backgrounds and succeeded at the highest level.

First year rowers will compete against other first years rowers from teams like Michigan, Clemson, and Georgia. We travel across the country to compete including Boston, Philadelphia, Florida, and San Diego. Despite competing at a high level, over 80% of the team majors in engineering, with several team members named in the ACRA All-Academic team each year.

To find out how to join, attend one of our Meetings for the Curious. You will hear from the coaches, meet your future teammates, and learn what rowing is all about. The meetings will be held at 5PM in the Campus Recreation Center (CRC) in Room 251. The meeting dates are as follows:

Tuesday, August 23
Thursday, August 25
Monday, August 29
Wednesday, August 31

If you have any questions or want more information, visit our join page or email us at publicrelations@gtcrew.com.

Georgia Tech Crew strives to compete successfully at the highest level while providing the opportunity for all students to grow through dedication, competition, and teamwork.
