About URI Club Rowing

The URI Crew Club has a rich tradition of excellence producing several Olympic and World Champion athletes, as well as several of today’s top coaches.

The club offers members the opportunity to engage in intercollegiate competition, with no experience necessary. The Club competes in regattas primarily in the northeast, against colleges from all over the U.S., including other club teams, and fully funded varsity programs.

The fall is spent developing technique and competing in “Head” style racing (against the clock) including the prestigious Head of the Charles. Athletes spend the winter doing land training, in preparation for head to head sprint racing in the spring. The club attends large regattas including the Murphy Cup and Knecht Cup, leading up to the New England Rowing Championships.


Novice Practices!

The next novice practice will be on Wednesday, September 19th @ 4pm and 5:30pm  at the URI Boathouse. Come to whichever practice best fits you schedule.  Rides leave Mackal at 3:30 and 5. Bring spandex shorts, running shoes, water and athletic clothing. We will most likely be indoors on the rowing machines  due to the weather conditions.

Interested people are always welcome to join us at a practice.  Just come down and check us out. And hopefully you’ll fall in love with the sport like we all did.
