Competitive Rowing

The Competitive Rowing program is for athletes who have finished their year of Novice and are interested in pursing a full practice schedule. Ideally these athletes have been able to row over the summer and are planning on racing at CURC caliber. Competitive rowers must purchase an UART Unisuit and an UART Polo Shirt.
