All are welcome with NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED.
Rowing is not only a sport but a gateway to unforeseen opportunity. The experiences that you have and the people that you meet will stay with you throughout your life, wherever you may go after graduation. The skills that you garner at practice can be used every day, in the classroom and in the "real world." The rowing community extends beyond the boundaries of city, state, and country, connecting people globally. Once you join rowing, you'll constantly meet new people who are rowers (or who know a rower).
This team focuses on strengthening women and building a close team environment of Davis students with a wide variety of major studies. We encourage a competitive atmosphere and strive for the betterment of every member on the team. This program provides a challenge that pushes limits physically and mentally. With this program comes the chance to travel around the country competing against NCAA DI, DII, DIII, and club teams, while gaining life long friends.
