Welcome to Gael Rowing!

Interested in rowing in college? You are in the right place! You may be wondering if you can become a rower if you have no prior rowing experience. The answer is YES! We welcome walk-ons to try out for the team. If you have a good attitude and you can work hard, you can be a rower.

We realize that not everyone has the chance to row before they come to college. That is what is so great about Saint Mary's Rowing- you have the opportunity to become a Division I Varsity Athlete! To be a walk-on rower here you must possess the qualities mentioned above and you should have a solid athletic background. Try-outs will last three to four weeks, during which time we will teach you the basics of rowing and you will undergo general conditioning. We will determine the novice rowing squad at the end of the try-out period.

Come to our information meeting the first week of school on Thursday, September 3rd at 6:00pm in the Soda Center! Be sure to check out the links to the right for further information regarding what to bring to the meeting (click on Walk-on Check List), FAQ's, how to register with the NCAA and other forms.
