No Experience? None Needed!
Each fall the GW Rowing team holds tryouts for those interested in excelling at a varsity sport. Tryouts are intended for highly motivated and talented freshmen athletes from other sports who want to explore rowing as a part of your four year college experience. The commitment to join the team is significant--training 6 days per week, travelling during weekends, breaks and holidays, and remaining on campus through June annually for the Division I National Rowing Championships. Please contact Assistant Coach Tom Guncik at email@example.com if you are interested in learning more about walking on to the team.
ABOUT GW MEN'S ROWING
The men's rowing team at The George Washington University is a varsity program that is a member of the prestigious Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges (EARC) Sprints League. The team competes in head races such as the Head of the Charles during the fall season and sprint races such as the EARC Eastern Sprints and IRA National Championship regattas in the spring.
Every April for the past 25 years, the GW men's and women's rowing teams host the George Washington Invitational - the largest collegiate rowing competition in the Washington metropolitan area. The regatta attracts thousands of spectators to the banks of the Potomac River at the peak of the Cherry Blossom Festival and in recent years has welcomed international crews in addition to collegiate teams.
Thompson Boat Center - located a few minutes' walk from campus on the banks of the Potomac River, the Thompson Boat Center houses the team's rowing shells and offers access to nearly limitless stretches of calm water.
Charles E. Smith Center - located in the heart of GW's Foggy Bottom Campus, the recently renovated Charles E. Smith Center is the year-round home for GW Rowing. Amenities include the erg room, weight training facilities, the Carbonell Academic Support Center, and Department of Sports Medicine. The Charles E. Smith Center is key to the success of our student-athletes. If you are interested in seeing more about team, please check out our Virtual Media Guide.
