  • Get fit and healthy – Rowing is a full body sport that works 84% of your muscles, requiring both strength and aerobic conditioning.
  • Travel – Our nationally ranked men's and women's teams travel throughout Ohio and across state lines to compete against some of the best teams in the nation.
  • Pride – In our 26 years, we have earned 22 trips to the Head of the Charles, dozens of regional and national medals, and 23 college scholarships. 3 Olympic rowers are UA Crew alumni.
  • The Race – We general race 60 foot long 8-boats and 45 foot long 4-boats 5000 meters in the fall, and 2000 meters in the spring. A 2000 meter race is physiologically equal to playing two back-to-back basketball games.
