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.
