Join The Family
We are a club sport at CSU that competes at the varsity level. No experience necessary to join. The desire to compete and be a part of a team is. No Sissies, Slackers, Whiners, Quitters, or Spectators Need Apply!
CSU Rowing stands for a winning attitude, strong desire to succeed, and self-confidence of enduring achievement. We want you to join us, try out, and see if you can cut it. There’s no shame in not making it, just in not trying
Read more about the team on our About Rowing section.
We are always looking for CSU students to join the team as rowers and coxswains (rowers row; coxswains don’t row, but they steer, direct, and support the boats/rowers during practices and races).
