Welcome to the Official Page of the University of Rhode Island Club Crew Team


Thank you to everyone who donated to our “Back in the Race” campaign! All donations and contributions will help URI Crew get back on the water after a prolonged few seasons on the erg and away from regattas! Donations will also help support the team and make very necessary repairs to our equipment. Every donation is greatly appreciated and will allow us to continue the tradition of success that has been passed on to us from our alumni.

Other Information

If you’re interested in rowing next year, beginning in the fall semester, or have any questions, please fill out the recruitment questionnaire. You may also send an email to either one of our coaches or recruitment chairs Natalie Chasten (nataliechasten@uri.edu) & Levi Comire (levi_comire@uri.edu). Our coaches emails can be found under the “Coaching Staff” sub-heading.

Plans for next year are for things to be back to somewhat normal. That means, practicing as a collective, competing at regattas, and spending as much time on the Narrow River gearing up for whatever next year may hold.

“Certainly we compete against each other but our competition is one of friendship, respect, and enjoyment. We practice two hours daily when school is in season in order to race at most, ten weekends a year. We then must question anyone’s thinking who can be satisfied only on race day. Winning is certainly a goal for us but we value it as a healthy striving. We demand enthusiasm and maximum individual effort so that out competing as a group will be successful.” -URI Crew Philosophy





About URI Club Rowing

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

The team offers members the opportunity to engage in intercollegiate competition, with no experience necessary. The team 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. In the spring the team attends large regattas including the Murphy Cup  Knecht Cup, and New England Rowing Championships before competing in the  American Collegiate Rowing Association Championships.
