About GW Women's Rowing

Women's Rowing at GW is a Division I, Varsity sport that competes in the Atlantic 10 Conference and the Eastern Sprints League from the heart of Washington, DC. All GW student-athletes receive priority class registration, which allows them to balance their academic and athletic lives with abundant internship and community service opportunities. With the Foggy Bottom campus being just blocks from the White House, National Mall, World Bank, National Embassies, and countless other points of interest, the opportunities for the GW student-athlete are second to none. The team competes in 3-4 races each fall, including the Head of the Charles, and 6-8 races in the spring. Every April for the past 25 years, the GW men's and women's rowing teams have hosted 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 from across the country.


The Potomac River and Thompson Boat Center are literally in GW's backyard, a ten-minute walk from campus.

The Thompson Boat Center houses the team's rowing shells and offers access to nearly limitless stretches of calm water. The team typically practices Monday-Saturday mornings from 7-9am.

The Charles E. Smith Center is 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 an erg room, strength and conditioning room, locker room, cardio room, the Carbonell Academic Support Center, and the Department of Sports Medicine. The Charles E. Smith Center is key to the success of our student-athletes.
