2023 FALL Recruitment

For those new to the sport, we have a novice team that teaches new athletes from the ground up, including skills for water safety. We live by the “no person left behind” motto and are committed to making this sport accessible to anyone who may be interested. For more experienced rowers, and those who have completed their novice year, please join our varsity team

Interested in joining our team?

If you are a current undergraduate student, graduate student, faculty, or staff member, you are eligible to join our team! We accept new team members at the start of both the fall and spring semesters. All interested students of any experience level are welcome to join, so don’t worry if you’ve never rowed before. If you do have rowing experience, that’s awesome! We’re looking for both coxswains and rowers, and some videos on our YouTube channel can help differentiate between the two roles. If you’re a high school student interested in joining our team, please note that we are not involved in the admission process of CMU, but would still love to hear from you! For any questions about the team or how to join, please contact 

What makes rowing so special?

You will never be a part of another sport that is more committed to camaraderie and teamwork. In order for the boat to move quickly down the race course, every single person in that boat has to be working together to make that happen. The skills you learn in this sport are not solely limited to your physical abilities, but are incredibly applicable in your daily life. Still not convinced? Reach out to us and let’s chat!
