Greg Harvie, Men's Varsity Head Coach

For Greg Harvie it all started at NCAA Division I Syracuse University where he earned a 4-year scholarship for rowing. Greg has been a part of the sport ever since and has accomplished a great deal however you’ll hardly ever hear him talk about it but here are a few points…

  • Holds a USRowing Level 3 coaching certificate
  • Has been a junior (high school kids) rowing coach for 24 years including for Upper Arlington Crew, Dublin Crew (now Central Ohio Rowing), and Saugatuck Juniors in Connecticut (one of the most successful junior rowing programs in the country)
  • Coached masters (adults) rowing for Greater Columbus Rowing Association for 5 years
  • Founding board member of the Midwest Junior Rowing Association
  • Has multiple USRowing Youth National Championship appearances as a coach
Greg brings with him years of experience as a successful rower and decades of experience as a coach and we are fortunate to have him. Greg has also devoted his adult life to the education of our young people and we’re happy to have him working our student athletes to not only give them a great rowing experience but to also help them navigate life.
