What we look for:

  • Experienced rowers, who have previously competed (masters, collegiate, national team, etc.)
  • Coxswains with racing experience
  • 2k erg
    • Men = 7:15 or below (age-dependent)
    • Women = 8:15 or below (age-dependent)
    • These are a general guideline, and should not discourage you from trying out.

Final determinations will be made at tryouts.
